The Ada Mascot



Lady Fairy, the Ada Language Mascot, by Leah Goodreau was the winner of a communtiy wide contest for an Ada Mascot.

My mascot was inspired by Ada Lovelace's adolescent fascination with flight and Charles Babbage's nickname for her, "Lady Fairy." The coloration of the mascot references the Asian fairy-bluebird, while the silhouette is a hummingbird because of their famed speed and sleekness.
