Vattenfall Logo 1900s
Initially, the emblem was a circle divided into two parts. The upper part was made in tangerine orange colour with a white five-pointed star in its upper-right part. The star symbolized the unique position of the company in the Swedish power industry. The lower half of the circle had two white and two azure blue wavy strips symbolizing water and the hydropower specialization of Vattenfall and underlining the connection with its name, which in Swedish means “waterfall”.

The last modification was introduced to the logo in 2018. The wordmark became more strict and concise. The letters lost all its serif elements and resembled the commercial font Remora Corp W4-Bold. The emblem also became simpler. It is the same circle but this time evenly divided into two parts: upper in bumblebee yellow and the lower in azure blue symbolizing the sun and the water. The logo is associated with the company’s policy aimed at contributing to a sustainable fossil-free energy system.
