Logo

The City of Helsinki logo is used in digital services for identifying the site as an official City of Helsinki service.

The City of Helsinki logo consists of the text Helsinki framed by the shape derived from the city crest. The logo must be used in accordance with the Visual Identity Guidelines - Logo. See the Logo component documentation for instructions on using Logo in implementation.

Please do not attempt to recreate the logo! Always use the appropriate original file. The City of Helsinki logo is a registered trademark.

Principles

Official City of Helsinki services must always show the City of Helsinki logo, which is placed:

  • at the top left corner of the page, in the header component
  • at the bottom of the page, in the footer component
  • at the browser website title, as favicon

In other parts of the page, the logo should be used sparingly.
