BJP logo

The visual identity of one of the largest and most influential Indian political parties, BJP, has two emblems, with one idea, but slightly different compositions, which are used for various needs. The logo is based on an image of a lotus in a saffron color palette.

Lotus has always been a sacred flower for Indian culture, you can see it depicted with many of the Hindu gods, such as, for example, Lakshmi or Vishnu. It symbolizes wealth and knowledge, wisdom and longevity. But the saffron lotus, is something escalated, the non-existent plant, which combines all the meanings in one.

The primary version of the BJP logo features an orange (saffron) flower in a bold black outline with some green leaves. It domes out of a white bottom with some short black strokes on it.

As for the secondary version, it is more complex and bright: here the flower in white and black is placed on the right, orange, part of the green and orange rectangular flag, which is oriented horizontally.

Font and color

The visual identity of Bharatiya Janata Party, or simply BJP, is based on just a graphical element, with no additional lettering. The emblem is set in green and orange, the two most important colors in India, which stand for two main confessions in the country — Islamic and Buddhist, respectively. Orange is also a color of energy and passion, which makes the party move and evolve, while green symbolized new beginnings and prosperity.
