You can install Ubuntu Tweak if you do not have it already. Then when you start it go to Gnome settings and on that tab you can change Ubuntu Logo. That will change only your logo and not a whole theme.enter image description here

That icon depends on your icon-theme.

To change that, open Appearance (gnome-appearance-properties) and change your icon theme by clicking customize.
