Vector design for Anemometer and connotations

I looked up anemometer on the internet and found out that they look like this. This isn’t the type of image I’m particularly familiar with so I decided not to follow this as an idea.

When I think of wind I think of wind socks so I decided to use this idea. Here are some pictures I looked at on the internet.

I used the pen tool to draw a very simple wind sock.

Connotations

Is your design clear and easy to understand?

I am not sure if people would know this is a wind sock or not. The pink colour background probably doesn’t help as wind socks are usually seen with scenery behind them.

How might others view it? How could it be mis-read?

Others may think it is a flag. People may read in to the pink background as pink is sometimes seen as a ‘girly’ colour.

Does it look appropriate or does it refer to other meanings?

I think using a wind sock is appropriate as it is the first thing I think of when I think of measuring wind.
