The CentOS Logo

The CentOS logo is the combination of the CentOS symbol and the CentOS type. The CentOS Artwork SIG uses the CentOS logo to "brand" images produced by the CentOS Project and provide visual connection between them so they can be monolithically recognized as part of a single unit, known as the CentOS Project.

The CentOS logo must be exactly the same every time it is printed in any medium. To grant this uniqueness, the artwork SIG designs the CentOS logo in SVG format and uses automation scripts provided by idFORGE Framework to produce final images from it. The final images are produced in different formats, colors and sizes but the proportion is strictly retained in all of them.
