From thetelegraph.co.uk: The £10,000 logo was unveiled by Lord Drayson, the science minister, and Lord Mandelson, the Business Secretary, to herald the opening of the department which is Britain’s answer to NASA.
However, the pattern of a red arrow pointing towards the corner of a Union Flag is similar to one used for the television show's Space Rocket Group, which featured in a Christmas special three years ago.
Alan Pettigrew, 41, a Doctor Who fan, told The Sun newspaper yesterday: “To say there's a similarity between the two logos is an understatement.”
Folio Creative, the space agency’s logo designers, insisted: “There is barely a passing resemblance.
“It is inevitable if you combine the Union Flag with a space theme. We are delighted the logo has been well received.”
