Low resolution?

As an SVG, the resolution is arbitrarily scalable, but the detail level is suitable for article use and not other uses

Purpose of use

The image is used to identify the organization African Union, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the readers that they have reached the right article containing critical commentary about the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.


Any image of this logo will look essentially the same, and if it did not, it would not be of this logo, and thus not suitable to illustrate discussion of this logo.
