The visual identity of the Ukrainian football club is minimalist yet very stylish and memorable. Executed in a very laconic color palette — blue and white — it uses the shade of blue, which looks light, fresh, and elegant, resembling the sky and evoking a sense of freedom, movement, and speed.

The Dynamo Kyiv logo is composed of a blue rhombus with a double white and blue outline and smoothly rounded angles. The rhombus is slightly narrowed and elongated, which makes the badge look elegant and sleek.

In the middle of the badge, there is a white letter “D” in cursive, boasting bold rounded lines it looks like a boat with a big white sail. Under the “D” the “КИÏВ” inscription is placed, also in white, but executed in a simple and strict sans-serif.

The only colorful part of the badge is located over the rhombus and is composed of two yellow-gold stars, which symbolize the club’s wins.
