What is the CofE logo?
The Church of England logo exists to provide a visual identity
that all parts of the Church can relate to and 'own'. The
Symbol and Namestyle are based on
the Christian cross, being distinguished by an encompassing 'e',
which implies universality.
The information summarised below should allow basic use of this
visual identity. In more complex and detailed scenarios, it's best
to speak with the Communications Team to
find out the correct way to use these assets.
The way in which the Church of England is perceived can be
strongly influenced by the way in which it presents itself
visually. This information is intended to give it an overall
contemporary, relevant and organised appearance that will enhance
How do I use the CofE logo?
The Church of England logo to be used is Version
1 in the first instance. It's important that only the
scale of the whole logo can be changed; no individual elements of
the logo should be altered. You should not use either the Symbol or
Namestyle on its own.
If you do not have enough horizontal space to
accommodate Version 1 of the
logo in your design, please use Version
Core Brand Colours
The Church of England uses two colours to reinforce its visual
identity. These are Lilac
and Blue. The colours should not be
altered or swapped in anyway, as this will weaken the visual
identity of the Church.
If you are using either varient of the logo on a solid colour
background other than white, then you should ensure that the full
logo is coloured white.
If you wish to use the logo over imagery, please contact the Communications
Team for permission.
Six colours make up the primary colour palette for the Church.
These correspond to the liturgical colours used during the year,
and allow an apporpriate colour to be selected from a wide variety
to be used in support of official Church of England
