Straw Hat Logo

The Straw Hat logo depicts a black-and-white caricature of a skull, placed over two crossed bones. The white skull in a medium-thick black outline is wearing a bright yellow straw hat with a red ribbon. All the elements of the image are outlined in black, which makes the picture look very distinctive, with recognizable geometry and rounded angles. More often the skull can be seen on a white background, although sometimes it can be placed over a solid black field.

Straw Hat Emblem

The cartoonish logo of the Straw Hat character from the One Piece anime does not have any lettering on it, hence there is no typeface to identify. Although, the color palette of the badge is composed of four shades: black and white for the skull, and red and yellow for the straw hat and the ribbon. The two last shades elevate the look of the badge and make it eye-catching and instantly recognizable.
