Best Free Linux Logos for use in books and public documents?


Hello,

I am writing a small document about Linux, and I would like to
find some Linux logos (penguin,...), which are in the public domain
and that can be freely used for publishing.

Which repository or website would you recommend which may offer this?

Thank You !!!

A Creative Commons search should turn up stuff you can use: https://search.creativecommons.org/

the website is a big strange, since afterwards, the search starts to Google. We can end up in any website.
If for any cases, the engine of google did not work, one may get risk to get into copyright.
Code:

a) that's the point.
b) you can choose other search engines than google, e.g.:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/inde...lltext=1&ns6=1

I commonly point Creative Commons search at Wikimedia Commons and at Open Clip Art Library when I'm looking for images I can use under CC-SA.

For a search engine, I use Startpage (ixquick in the UK); I've used it for years. Startpage uses Google, but does not pass your data on to them.
