Addendum (Sept 16) - Curious about that logo? The correlation is actually more simple and direct than it first appears. The word “steel” translated into Afrikaans is “staal,” hence the stylized type in the SAISC logo. Afrikaans is a derivative of Dutch and one of the most widely spoken of South Africa’s 11 official languages.
