Why is img/ionic.png in the starter templates?

Hey all,

I was wondering why the img/ionic.png file exists in every Ionic starter project. As far as I can find, it is never referenced. Do I miss something? Or is it just there to prevent an empty img directory? (Which probably means that I can simply remove that file without consequences.)

No consequences. Remove at will. May have been used as an icon image, but that would get replaced anyway.
