Fairy Tail Logo

Fairy Tail Logo
While the Fairy Tail logo may seem somewhat intricate, at first glance, it can be easily broken into two main elements. To begin with, there’s a dragon-like shape on the forefront. It’s placed over the name of the series, which is given in an elaborate “magic” type. As a result, the logo looks pretty cluttered, yet is rich in symbolism and very distinctive.

Meaning and history

Fairy Tail logo history


The Japanese manga series Fairy Tail was first published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in the summer of 2006. The number of volumes reaches 63. The series tells about the adventures of Natsu Dragneel, a member of the wizard guild Fairy Tail. In 2009, an anime series of the same name began broadcasting.

“Fairy” symbol

The orange shape on the forefront is the symbol of one of the guilds described in the series. The Fairy Tail guild is known as the strongest guild in the Kingdom of Fiore.
Each of the guild members makes the same tattoo. At first glance, it may look like a flying dragon or a flying arrow with its tail burning. In the series itself, a different explanation is given, though. Makarov, one of the guild masters, told Lucy that the symbol depicted a dancing or jumping fairy with a tail. Makarov explained that as fairies are mysterious, no one knows whether they do or don’t have a tail. Both the emblem and the name of the guild symbolize that its members are in constant pursuit of mystery and adventure. The picture was made by Mavis, the first guild master.

Emblem

The name of the series is given in a very unusual and memorable type. Each of the letters appears to be a picture by itself. The intricate design of the letters goes perfectly well with the “fairy” and “wizard” themes.

Fairy Tail hand sign

In addition to the logo described above, we should also mention the hand sign used by the Fairy Tail guild. To make the sign, you need to keep all the fingers open, except index finger and thumbs. The back of the hand should be facing the audience. The sign was invented by Laxus. Its symbolic meaning can be described in the following way: “Wherever you are, I’ll always be looking at your side.”

Font

The type featured on the Fairy Tail logo is custom artwork. You will probably notice the way it reflects the shape of the Fairy Tail guild emblem on the forefront (for instance, the right end of the “L”).

Colors
