UnionPay Logo-2002
The initial badge of the UnionPay service was executed in a bright red, blue, and green color palette, just like the one we all can see today. The colors were set on the background, making up three diagonal elements, which formed a parallelogram with rounded angles. On this figure there were two white hieroglyphs, standing for the name of the company.

UnionPay Logo

The logotype of UnionPay was designed at the time of the establishment of the company and practically has not changed since then. It consists of a rectangle with rounded corners bearing three broad vertical stripes and the name UnionPay in Latin and Chinese script.

The colours of the stripes are red, blue and blue-turquoise. In China, the red colour symbolizes the Phoenix bird and represents the element of fire and the strive for upward motion. The Blue colour is a symbol of the sky, while turquoise means the source of wealth and abundance. As to the font, it is most close to Savigny Bold Normal Italic.
