Official Logo and Artwork

The Ubuntu logo may be used in one of the formats linked below. Please refer to the trademark policy for information regarding permission and correct usage of the logo.

Note that:

  • With the release of Ubuntu 5.04, the logo evolved slightly. Specifically, the word Ubuntu is now black, rather than the navy blue of its original form. The black text is now the officially sanctioned version.
  • Below are versions of the logo with and without the strapline "linux for human beings" and by itself and set in a white lozenge.
  • The Ubuntu logo should be used in the correct orientation, i.e.
    • Don't rotate the circular device so that a round "head" is at the top
    • Don't rotate the entire logo so that the word Ubuntu is on an angle - it should read straight, left to right.
  • If you are using the logo, please use one of these officially approved versions.
