Credit Agricole Logo

Credit Agricole Logo
The logo of Crédit Agricole seems to have been inspired by the nickname “Green Bank.”

Meaning and history

The current Credit Agricole logo is the combination of the initials of the bank’s name. The letters are positioned in such a way that the longer end of the “C” forms the horizontal bar of the “A.” Moreover, the end of the “C” is extended so much it had to be “cut” so as not to “grow” beyond the borders of the logo.
This “growing” design and the greenish palette help to remind of the historical ties to farming Credit Agricole has. We should also point out that it has been often referred to as “La banque verte”, which means “The green bank” in translation from French.
Logo Credit Agricole


Although the emblem looks dynamic and has a “farming” note, it is impossible to guess to which company it belongs unless you already know it. That’s why you can often see the “CA” emblem paired with the writing “Crédit Agricole” or “Group Crédit Agricole.”
The logo of the Group is typically given in white over the dark green background, while the logo of the bank itself features two shades of green with a red accent.

Font

The type featured in the Group Credit Agricole logo is a clean, minimalist sans. While the majority of the letters look perfectly average, the “E’s” have an unusual touch: their top left corner is a straight angle, while the lower angle is rounded.
