I just noticed that the logo is not consistent at all. I am talking about the new and old liveries with the colored logo (blue and red). On the old, it is found on the tail, and on the new, it is found next to "United" on the fuselage.
Here we have the red half on the right hand side on the starboard side of the aircraft:

Look at flags on aircraft ... usually you'll find that the Stars in the US flag are on the right of the flag on one side of the A/C and on the left on the other side (thus they're always to the front or rear of the plane)*. If you removed the plane, but left the flag there, it would be consistent with a printed flag flapping in the breeze (i.e., the Stars are always adjacent to the flagpole).
I guess it's the same with the logo -- remove the aircraft, and you'll get a single logo -- not two logos that are mirror images of each other.
I hope this make sense
* I'm using the US flag as an example -- even if it doesn't appear to be painted on UA aircraft.
