You may not use either of Oracle’s Java coffee cup logos, either the old style or the new orange style on your own projects or site. Sun reserve them for their exclusive use. There is a copy of the orange logo in C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_131\\lib\resources.jar called JavaCup32.png but you may not use it in your applications.
Sun has 22 logos for customer use. Most require that your program pass a test suite. The Jump To Java logo, the Get Java logo and the Get Java Powered logo merely require that you use Java on your website. You still must get permission first though.
However, you may use Duke and variations freely without permission.
