No, not really.  The closest thing to an "official" logo is the Perl onion.
In 2008, we used the Chicago flag with sigils in place of the stars.
In 2007, Houston used the NASA logo with the onion inside of it.
In 2006, we used the Camel (with O'Reilly's permission) starting the Great
Chicago Fire.
In 2005, Toronto used a "camoose".
