  • Download PNG Canal 13 Logo PNG Canal 13 is the name of one of the most popular TV-channels in Chile, which was established in 1959 as Canal 2 de la Universidad Catolica de Chile.
  • But things changed after it was moved to a new frequency and switched its name from Canal 2 de la Universidad Catolica de Chile to Canal 13.
  • Though the number “13” became the main symbol on the channel’s logo, there was quite a long period in Canal 13 history, when the logo featured no numbers at all — it lasted for more than two decades.
  • 1961 – 1970 The very first logo of the channel was executed in a dark and strict color palette composed of gray and black.
  • 1970 The redesign of 1970 made the logo look modern and cool with the black and bold “13” placed above the custom lot written “TV” in white with a black outline.
  • The new composition featured a black square with arched sides and rounded angles, resembling an old TV screen, and white symbols on it.
  • In the square, formed by the negative space between two letters, there was a small yet bold “13” written in white, and above the monogram — a lightweight sans-serif “Universidad Catolica de Chile” inscription in all capitals.
  • 1972 – 1978 The upper line of the lettering was removed and the “13” was replaced by the “UC”, standing for the Universidad Catolica de Chile in 1972.
  • 1978 – 1979 The redesign of 1978 changed the black background of the Canal 13 logo to a colorful and bright one.
  • 1999 – 2000 The name of the channel was changed back to Canal 13 in 1999, and the number returned to the logo.
  • The new design of the badge featured a modern sans-serif “Canal” inscription in black capitals, placed on the left from the enlarged blue “13” enclosed in a blue circle, with the monochrome solid dot and “UC” lettering on it, placed on the upper right part of the blue frame.
  • 2000 – 2002 In 2000 the color palette of the logo was changed, its lines — refined, and the “13” and “UC” exchanged their places.
  • Now the “Canal” in thin yet strict lines was colored gray, the “UC” in a circular frame — bright blue, and the “13” was written in white on a small gray circle, placed on the upper part of the UC’s frame.
  • 2002 – 2005 The color palette of the logo was evolved in 2002, and now all the elements of the composition were executed in a royal blue shade and placed on a white background.
  • It was a solid orange circle with a smooth arched line in white placed on its upper part.
  • Under the arch, there was a modern sans-serif “UC” lettering, also in white, and the strict narrowed “13” placed inside the letter “C” and executed in the same color.
  • Now the simplified composition with a white number “13” standing on a white arch and placed on a solid orange background started looking more balanced and modern due to the absence of extra details and the cleanliness of its bold lines.
  • Today the Canal 13 logo featured a rounded orange number “13” standing on a smooth bold orange arch, placed on a white background.
  • The logo looks progressive and dynamic.
  • Font and color On the current Canal 13 visual identity there is no lettering, just the number “13”, executed in soft thick lines with rounded angles yet solid and confident shapes.
