Like any major funder or sponsor the European Union expects to see that its logo is being used within your communications activity. Using the logo informs people about the commitment that the EU has in developing the region.
Unlike the previous programming period both the PEACE IV and INTERREG VA Programmes have their own individual logos which should be used in consultation with the Publicity and Marketing Guide for EU Funded Projects.
The Programme logos must be used in the format supplied and must not be recreated or modified in any way. If you are having difficulties downloading the logos, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The logo colours are derived from the European flag and must not be changed. For use in graphic and web design, the colours are defined below for all colour systems:
For single colour reproductions, a greyscale version of the logo should be used. This logo should only be used whenever full colour is not available.
The European Commission has a number of basic but important rules when it comes to the use of the Programme logo:
- If it is displayed alongside any other logo(s), then the Programme logo must be at least the same size, measured in height or width, as the biggest logo it is placed against;
- The logo must always be clearly visible and placed in a prominent position. Its position and size should be appropriate to the scale of the material or document on which it is used;
- The logo must be displayed in colour on websites. In all other usage of the logo, colour should be used whenever possible and a black and white version only when this is not possible.
- Size - you need to ensure that the logo is recognisable and does not look distorted
- Ideally the logo should be used on white backgrounds only. Using the logo on a coloured background is possible if there is no alternative, but it must be a very light background so that the logo may be seen.
