Roland Garros logo

In 2009 the logo of Roland Garros was slightly refined, with the colors of the medallion getting a bit more intense, and the contours of the lettering around the emblem’s perimeter — emboldened. In a refreshed typeface the inscription became more visible, which has made the whole medallion look confident and professional.

Roland Garros Emblem

The palette of the Roland Garros logo is built up of brown (HEX: #b06835), green (HEX: #06492d), and white. Each of the colors is meaningful. The brown is the color of the clay. It reminds of the fact that Roland Garros is often named the birthplace of the ground court game. It is paired with white to resemble the colors of a stadium. The green on the logo symbolizes the trees and lawns seen around the courts.

There has been some playing around with the shades over the years, although the overall look of the colors has remained the same.
