Who is responsible for defining a site logo? I mean, there are moderators of the site that define it, or stackexchange defines it?

    Actually, I wanted to know how these sites with a generic logo ( the blue comic balloon) comes to get a new logo.

Our designers come up with the overall site design (including the logo), with some input from the communities. (With the exception of sites that are still in beta or have only recently graduated - those all share the same design.)

If you have an issue with a logo on a site, the best place to start is to open a discussion on that site's meta. Tag it and , and see what the overall community feeling is.

Community managers monitor per-site metas, so if/when the discussion concludes and the site's community largely supports a change, they can bring your concerns to the design team.

(And if by "logo" you mean "favicon", the process is largely the same - start on the site's meta and we'll go from there.)
