“Fedora” and the Fedora logo are trademarks of Red Hat, Inc. In order to protect and grow the Fedora brand, we have a distinguishable logo that can be used to mark genuine Fedora resources and approved third-party content. There are guidelines for the logo's appearance and usage, outlined here.

  • Please note that this logo queue is maintained by a human being, and that it may take some time to get a response (sometimes a week or two).
  • If the request is time-sensitive please indicate this and make sure you provide enough information and allow for enough time to receive the logo.
  • If the request is truly urgent, please indicate this with an [URGENT] in the subject line, but please do not abuse this. An example of an urgent request would be, 'My event is in a week and I need the logo design for some collateral to provide at the events.' An example of a request that is NOT urgent is, 'I'm working on a project and it's really important and I want the logo now.'
  • To ensure your request goes through as quickly and as smoothly as possible, please indicate what you intend to use the logo for in your request.

Can I use this logo to brand goods and sell them for profit?

Please see the Trademark Guidelines section on non-software goods. In short, you will need explicit permission from the Fedora Board to sell non-software Fedora goods for profit.

Where does this design come from?

Please refer to the Fedora logo history.

What font is used in the logotype?

The font in the logotype is Bryant2. This font is not a free font, but it was chosen because it best complements the logo design. The license for use of this font in the official logo is paid, so the logo can be used wherever the trademark and usage guidelines allow without further cost. There is no need to buy this font to produce artwork for Fedora, since the logo itself should never be modified. For more information refer to an archive message on fedora-art-list.

What about the red or blue hats?

The hats you might have seen elsewhere were not Fedora logos. You might have seen the red hat that was passed down from Fedora's Red Hat Linux lineage. Other hats have been community creations and never had any official connection to Fedora. Use our logo and avoid using hats to represent Fedora since we want Fedora to have its own independent brand.

Where can I find more Fedora artwork?

Additional Fedora artwork is produced by the Fedora Artwork team.

The following is the logo for FUDCon:

The fonts used to create this logo are free fonts included in Fedora itself. They are MgOpen Modata Regular and MgOpen Modata bold. Inkscape SVG source artwork is available for this logo; you may email logo@fedoraproject.org to obtain a copy after accepting the usage agreement.
