Visual Identity

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 its mission.

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 2

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.

CofE Colour Palette

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.
