FINA Corporate Logos

Main logo

The FINA primary corporate logo is used in most cases. Main colours are blue with yellow stars.

 

 

Logo variations

The logo has two variations - horizontal and vertical. Depending on the needs it can be used with or without the tag line 
“Water Is Our World”. The version without the tag line can be used when the size prevents it from being legible.

Construction

The FINA logo consists of 4 main elements:

- Earth map in a form of a Globe

It differs from a standard map, it was modified to suit the logos needs. The two hemispheres are shown in a way that all continents are visible at the same time, without the spherical distortion for Europe and Africa.

- 6 Stars stands for the 6 FINA disciplines:

  • Swimming
  • Diving
  • Synchronised Swimming
  • Water Polo
  • Open Water Swimming
  • High Diving
    and are placed on top of the Globe, in a form of a wave, that represents water.

- FINA letters (capital F, lowercase -ina), this is the abbreviation of “Fédération Internationale de Natation”

- Tag line “Water Is Our World”

 

Safe space

Safe area is used to prevent users from placing other elements near the logo that may distort the perception of the sign.
The module used to determine the safe area around logo is the width of the letter “F”.

                                        1.1 With tag line                                                              1.2 Without tag line

 

 

Achromatic versions

Achromatic versions (black and white), differ slightly from the main logo due to usage of only one colour. Therefore the stars, in order to be visible, need to have a border and be empty of coulours inside the lines.

They can also exist without the tag line, all the guidelines and rules for safe space and another apply ecually to the chromatic version.

Colour permutation

The FINA corporate logo can exist with an “inverted” colour scheme, which means that the main colour is white, and the stars remain yellow. 

 

 

Minimum size

The minimum size shows the smallest allowed usage of the logo. This is to prevent the logo or part of it from being illegible.

There are two main rules for the minimum size:

- The minimum size for the FINA logo with the tag line
- The minimum size for the fina logo without the tag line

 

1.1 The minimum size with the tag line                                          1.2 The minmum size without the tag line

For use on different backgrounds

In general - don’t use FINA corporate logos on backgrounds that are different colour schemes than white/light/blue/dark blue.

Proper usage:
1. Acceptable on light - solid, gradient or patterned backgrounds - white/grey.
2. Acceptable on fairly uniform blue/dark backgrounds.
3. Galleries/multiple photos - due to the nature of photos, it’s recommended to use the FINA logo on a small square (to keep consistency within a gallery)

Incorrect use of logos:
1. Don’t use logos in a way that makes it
ilegible - e.g. dark logo on dark background, logo on complicated backgrounds.
