  Any differences are strictly aesthetic. It may be drawn slightly
differently, but it's the same Zeon with the same logo.

  After twenty years, Sunrise has finally decided on this, and it's Zeon.
Specifically, Principality of Zeon - though AnimeVillage went with "Duchy
of", either for the sake of tradition or because it's shorter. At any
rate, all future Gundam books and models and video goods will be hewing
to the "Zeon" spelling.
