The Fedora Logo: Usage Guidelines

'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.

Reversing Logotype Color to White

When the logo is used on a background that is darker than 50% grey, you should reverse the type to white for legibility:

In greyscale reproduction, use the black and white version on the logo:

For Use on Dark Backgrounds

For dark backgrounds in a greyscale printing situation, we recommend the Black & White logo guidelines below.

Sometimes, often due to production costs, only one color of ink is available and so the Fedora logo must be reproduced using only one color. In this scenario, the logotype must be used alone without the logo mark, in a light color type on a dark background or in a dark color type on a light background. The logotype must be clearly distinguishable from the background color. You must honor the Fedora logo palette when possible, using black or white if necessary.

Some examples follow, below:

Complementary Font

We recommend using the MgOpen Modata fonts as complementary fonts to the Fedora logotype. Both the MgOpen Modata Bold and MgOpen Modata Regular fonts are fine to use.

MgOpen Modata is part of Fedora. To install this font (and the other MgOpen fonts):

yum install mgopen-fonts

For more information about the MgOpen Modata font, please see [1] .

Never Use the Logo on Similarly-Colored Backgrounds

Never use the logo on similarly-colored backgrounds, unless the color is Pantone ® 2935 and the logotype is white.
