The Platinum Jubilee Logo

Read Time:54 Second

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee logo will feature on anything and everything to do with this historic celebration. Here’s what you need to know about an image that will be everywhere in 2022.

It’s the idea of 19 year old Edward Roberts from Nottinghamshire whose design was chosen from thousands submitted to an official competition run by the Victoria and Albert Museum. He’s a graphic design student at the University of Leeds and he looked to royal history for his inspiration.

The main feature of the design, a crown, is based on St. Edward’s Crown while the purple is an exact match to the robe worn by The Queen at her Coronation. The font is called ‘Perpetua’, meaning eternal, while the top of the Crown is shaped into a number 70.

The logo can be used for all activities linked to the Jubilee including publications, social media, retail and merchandising. However, it can’t be altered and the colour mustn’t be changed.

And by the end of 2022, it will be a familiar sight to people around the UK and the world.
