I noticed that this logo that is seen in the StackExchange site bar (and the favicon):

StackExchange bar logo

is different from the big one seen on the site:

Big Puzzling logo

The difference is that there are no borders, less pale colors, and the most prominent, the color at the top-left of the logo is blue in the tiny icon, and green in the big one.

Is it supposed to be like this?

    $\begingroup$ This is intentional. How would you draw the borders in the tiny logo? $\endgroup$

It might be because of the limitation of the size of our monitor. However as I am not an expert, so I am not sure but when you zoom in the window you get this:

Here clearly, we can see the borders and the same colors.

    $\begingroup$ He's right. It appears to be simply the resizing of the icons to fit the schema. $\endgroup$ May 9, 2016 at 5:13
