Comment 10 by FractalShift :

It's a referrence to John Lennon's Imagine; being a slight paraphrase of the first line.

Possibly, but not definitely. John Lennon does not have a patent on the word 'imagine'.

It DEFINITELY is referring to the Lennon song. Listen to the FFRF podcast called Freethought Radio (search for it in iTunes or on Google). The song is their intro song and they make numerous references to it and have stated outright that is where they got the idea for that particular design.

As a side note the point of the less "shocking" of the designs is to make the inevitable over reaction of the other side appear ridiculous to anyone who is in the middle ground.
