Initiative logos are an extension of our flexible logo system. They use a graphic in the style of our standard icons that is specific to the initiative’s mission and goals. Since they don’t include the fedora icon, they must always be used with the Red Hat® logo. They will also need more design support and resources over the life of the program than our other logo styles need.
Clear space is the area around the logo that should not have text, distracting graphics, or other logos. The clear space for initiative logos is at least the height of the letter "e" in the word "Red."
Whenever an initiative logo is used, the Red Hat logo should always be included nearby. Clear space between the two logos should be at least the height of the letter "e" in the initiative logo, but the size of the Red Hat logo can change.
Initiative logos are produced in 2 full-color versions: standard and reverse. They are also produced in 3 one-color versions: red, white, and black.

Initiative logos in use
Use initiative logos with other Red Hat brand elements like illustrations and patterns for visual interest, but always maintain proper clear space between the logo and other elements.
When including an initiative logo on a digital application, always include the Red Hat logo somewhere on the layout.
On swag or other multisided applications, we include the Red Hat logo in a separate imprint area as needed.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) communities use initiative logos with color to represent their people and cultures. Other initiatives do not use colors beyond red. Learn more about DEI community logos.
