The Ramsar logo


The Ramsar logoThe Ramsar logo, adopted by the Standing Committee in October 1998, consists of the word Ramsar in the Garamond font on a blue-green background with two white lines suggesting waves.

The logo can be used for suitable non-commercial purposes without prior permission from the Secretariat. Examples of such appropriate uses might include signs at and brochures about Ramsar sites, printed materials describing the Convention, World Wetlands Day materials, etc. The only rule we have about the non-commercial use of the Ramsar logo is that it should not be positioned in such a way as to suggest that the Secretariat has endorsed or participated in the publication of the product (unless we have endorsed or participated in it).

For commercial uses of the logo, please contact the Secretariat.

This is a ca. 4 or 5 megabyte TIFF version of the logo with the name of the Convention underneath -- it has been Zipped to about 50kb for easy downloading. If you wish to use just the graphic itself without the name beneath it, feel free to crop that off.

The Secretariat also has the logo in the EPS and other formats; please don't hesitate to let us know if you should have any problems with it.
