Q: How can the EU emblem be used by beneficiaries of EU programmes and other third parties?
A: The European Union has a range of programmes which have been set up to support projects and initiatives in various domains across the EU and beyond.
In accordance with the Commission's guidelines on visual identity, all EU programmes must be identified exclusively by the EU emblem and the mention of the programme name.
The names of programmes, such as Horizon 2020 and FP7, will be used as verbal brands, i.e. references to them will be made without a logo.
Commission services will apply the Commission’s visual identity guidelines when communicating about EU programmes.
Beneficiaries of EU funding will use the European emblem in their communication to acknowledge the support received under EU programmes.
The guidelines mentioned below are intended for beneficiaries of EU funding and other third parties who communicate about EU programmes to show how the European Union emblem can be used in conjunction with text which highlights the fact of EU funding.
