Sukhoi Logo

Sukhoi Logo
The logo of the Russian aircraft manufacturer JSC Sukhoi Company is meaningful, minimalistic, and dynamic. During its more than 81-year history, it has gone through over four updates.

Meaning and history

The current Sukhoi logo can be given both in Russian and in English (there is a version in each of the languages). Both versions have the same structure. They combine a silver emblem with a dark blue wordmark. The palette differs a little.
In the Russian logo, the emblem appears somewhat lighter, while the shade of blue is brighter.

Symbol

The silver symbol is made up of a circle housing a stylized aircraft, which looks like an arrow. The aircraft is heading up and to the right, which adds some dynamism.

Older emblems

You can come across an older version where there were additional details on the aircraft and the circle was smaller than the aircraft.
Another version featured the aircraft flying backward (to the left). You can also come across a logo depicting a stylized arrow and shapes looking like a Native American headdress.
