Wikipedia logo and symbol, meaning, history, PNG

  • Download PNG Wikipedia Logo PNG Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia, which explains almost every subject.
  • Information is available in a variety of languages.
  • Meaning and history 2001 The core visual metaphor has remained unchanged in spite of all the modifications the logo has gone through over its history.
  • The earliest Wikipedia logo was already based on the circle, which was of course inspired by the shape of our planet.
  • Also, there already were letters written inside the circle.
  • Back then, the letters were small and formed multiple words, which is very different from the current design.
  • 2001 — 2003 The globe could be paired with the large word “Wikipedia” and the lettering “The Free Encyclopedia” in smaller letters below.
  • The logo was an incomplete globe constructed of jigsaw pieces with a few ones missing at the top.
  • 2003 — 2010 The globe was slightly rotated reminding the position of the Earth.
  • In this version, the words on the jigsaw pieces were already replaced by separate large glyphs.
  • A wordmark ‘Wikipedia’ is placed beneath the globe, and ‘The Free Encyclopedia’ slogan underlines the whole emblem.
  • The glyphs symbolize the website’s multilingualism.
  • Font The Wikipedia logo uses a stylish serif font.
  • Color The color palette used in the Wikipedia logo consists of light shades of gray.
