I could be wrong but I remember when this was first discussed that the
daemon wasn't being retired. The daemon is a generic BSD mascot, which is
used by all three BSDs, and the flag is replacing the netbsd logo (the
daemons on the pile of computers with the flag, which was derived from
military theme). FreeBSD and OpenBSD have their own logos which don't include
a daemon, just like netbsd.
