The Expo 67 Logo

I have always had an interest in logos and corporate identities. I remember helping my dad create a logo for his company when I was in grade school.

Designed by Montreal industrial artist Julien Hébert, the Expo 67 logo is a timeless design with it's avant-garde lower-case font (Optima) and it's circle of stick-figure men, arms outstretched in fellowship. Instantly recognizable, infinitely elegant, the graphic symbol of the 1967 World Exhibition is as close to perfection as a logo could be...

But, as you know by now, I have a biased opinion when it comes to Expo 67!

Do you think that Columbia, Maryland plagiarized the expo67 logo for their logo?

You mean the statue with outstretched arms? It's reminiscent, but I wouldn't quite call it plagiarism.
