Logo and visual identity

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.

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 design itself combines the letters ‘c’ and ‘e’ (as in the Church of England) but more important is the central positioning of the cross, reflecting the centrality of the cross in the life of the Church. People will also draw other themes from the design. It is open to the world: a universal Church.

None of the assets provided on this page should be altered in anyway. The Symbol and Namestyle should not be used individually or have other graphic elements added to it. If you need assistance, please contact the Communications Team.

There are three versions of the logo, each shown below:

The Church of England logo version 1 The Church of England logo version 1

Version 1 should be used first, unless the maximum width of the logo would be less than 50mm (190 pixels).
