The image to show in the splash screens, or nil for defaults.

You can customize this variable.

You can set the fancy-splash-image variable to the image of your choice, or in your case to an empty picture.

How do you find and edit that variable? – barlop Aug 4 '13 at 18:36
When I start emacs, I do ALT-x it says M-x. I type set-variable<ENTER>. I type inhibit-splash-screen<ENTER> it asks for a value, I do t<ENTER>. Then the logo is still there. I close and open emacs and it's still there. – barlop Aug 4 '13 at 23:01
