About the app logo

Whenever possible, we include the site's official logo when we create the app. If we can't include the official logo, we create a custom logo using the first letter of the site's name and a randomly-chosen background color. This custom logo becomes the app's standard logo for the entire org. If other orgs add the same app, their custom logo is typically assigned a different background color.
