The iconic crest with diamonds has been slightly extended horizontally, so we’re the diamonds themselves.

The lettering under the emblem was also rewritten — two dark gray lines with the enlarged Chinese logotype set above the smaller “Geely Auto” in capitals.

2023 – Today

Geely Logо

The redesign of 2023 has introduced a flat and graphically simplified version of the famous Geely badge. Although it doesn’t mean the badge of the company became ordinary and boring, on the contrary, the clean lines and the refreshed color palette have elevated the look of the iconic horizontally-stretched crest. Now the crest is formed by six flat black fragments, which are placed at a slight distance from each other, against a gradient background in bright blue shades. The uppercase lettering, placed under the emblem, is executed in a medium-weight sans-serif font, borrowing from the previous version of the logo.
