I can't state the exact article now, but I am sure that it says that was there before Google. Just look at the whois data of the domains, has at least one year head start to Google's Gmail announcement.

Could very much be so, but the colors in the logo are totally 'aimed' at Google's service. Or did Google imitate think not!

Being first is one thing, copying one another is a of a totally different kind.

Why do you think that they redesigned the logo after the release of Gmail?
Why can't you just accept that either:
a) Google overlooked the .cn site, and designed a similar logo
b) so the logo, and they copied it, knowing that almost noone knew the .cn site existed
c) they come up with similar designs independently?
