Heres a few suggestions that might work:

#1 TRACING, hard edged Gimp brush, Pencil Tool:
if you have a tablet.
You could pick a hard brush with the Pencil pencil tool, then put your logo paper on the tablet & trace it with the tablet's stylus (make your canvas size in gimp bigger if it doesn't fit "Image > Canvas size..."

#2 SCAN/TAKE PICTURE OF, then Gimp Filters...
After re-drawing on paper, you can take a picture of it with your digital camera (macro-mode recommended if your camera has it for clearest image) or scan the image.
Then import it into gimp & vectorfy it(in a sense) through a filter or two. (levels, threadshold, number of ways, we'll get to that later maybe...)

#3 In Gimp (Basically from scratch in Gimp, a bit lengthy process),
If #2 doesn't work out, you can try finding a black circle shape & black triangle shape, it should have at least more than half your screen resolution or screen resolution.) If gimp runs slow, pick a step down in resoolution.
(You don't want it too low, because if you need to scale it up it will get blurry.)

For the circle
Ok, then with both shapes imported into Gimp use the Ellipseselect ellipse select tool to cut out the middle to where you just have an outline of the circle(you pick the width of the line, "how much you select in the middle vs line thickness")
You can then duplicate your circle layer to make an outer outline.
Use the Scale scale tool to enlarge the outer circle.

For the triangles
Using the Freeselect free select/lasso tool, repeat the above paragraph, use the tool to carve out the middle of the triangles by selecting the inside & pushing delete.
After you carve out the insides, you'll want to rotate Rotate the triangle, then duplicate the triangle layer & flip the layer with Flip flip tool *Pick Flip Type: Horizontal.
.
.
...at least those are how I would go about it.
