I just came across this example, and wanted to point out that the United Nations logo is not azimuthal equal-area. It's azimuthal equidistant as noted in its description:

a map of the world representing an azimuthal equidistant projection centred on the North Pole, inscribed in a wreath ... The projection of the map extends to 60 degrees south latitude, and includes five concentric circles
