A logo for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement

15 April 2016

A logo has been developed to represent the whole of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

This is an official logo that we will be using under certain circumstances, for example when the ICRC, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies communicate or raise funds together for a humanitarian emergency, theme or campaign of global concern.

What is the Movement logo?

The Movement logo consists of the red cross and red crescent emblems side by side, together with the words "International" and "Movement".

You'll be seeing the logo in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish (the official languages of the International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent).

What does the Movement logo represent?

It represents the whole Movement – the 190 National Societies, the ICRC and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. It illustrates the reach of our global network.

When will the Movement be using the new logo?

We will use the logo on specific occasions for representation, communication, promotion and fundraising. Any use of the logo requires special approval.

Where won't we be using the Movement logo?

The Movement logo does not replace the logos of the ICRC, the International Federation of Red Cross and Crescent Societies or National Societies.

And we won't be using it for operational activities. That means we won't use the Movement logo on things like uniforms, vehicles, equipment or buildings, or on materials distributed to people affected by conflict, disasters or other emergencies.

If you have any questions about this logo, please contact rcrc@ifrc.org.
