What do icons on the tags mean?

I noticed that Adobe-related, .NET-related and Android-related products tag names have a nice and neat logo attached. I like it because it makes visual filtering easier (even though the "intersting tags" and "ignored tags" are great features, they can't cover it all - most people are, like myself, lazy, and don't want to put every single tag they could in those lists).

To my knowledge, C or C++, for instance, do not have a logo (though one could wonder why), so it's normal that the tag would not have one attached to it. But Java does have a logo, doesn't it ? The little coffee cup ? My question : why isn't that logo in the "Java" and other java-related tags ?

(All right, this question is not really a big big problem, but it's been bugging me and I just want to know why things are the way they are :)).

The images on certain tags are because a company has paid to sponsor the tag. The logos aren't there to help filtering.

Thanks, I didn't know at all... perhaps this should be put in the FAQ or someplace where you can easily spot it. – Raveline Sep 15 '10 at 9:05
