Previous Unitarian Universalist Association Logo

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) used the "starburst" logo from late 2005 until early 2014. Congregations and other Unitarian Universalist (UU) organizations may continue to use this logo.

This logo is offered to you in two formats: .eps and .tif. These are two standard formats which will retain the transparency of the graphic (in other words the graphics won't be imported in a big white box). Either of these formats can be imported into most graphic and word processing applications—one or the other should work.

Graphic Standards

This earlier UUA logo was designed to convey the idea of light emanating from the flame, or illumination. To maintain a consistent appearance the number of radiants must adapt appropriately as the chalice increases or decreases in size. For this reason, we have provided versions of the logo in various sizes.

Logo Reproduction

The TIF and EPS files are not intended for web viewing—they are good for graphics editors. If you right-click on the links, you should get an option to "Save Target As...." and you can then download any of the TIF or EPS files to your hard drive. The EPS files require image-editing software to manipulate, but the TIF files can be inserted into almost any publishing software, like Microsoft Word.

Henning Hraban Ramm's U/U Chalice Font can be used in any software that uses text, and it includes the UUA chalice as the capital "A."

A. Traditional Use

B. Reverse Applications

When the UUA logo is required to appear on a solid black or colored background it is recommended that one of the logo versions below be used. The specifics of the application will determine which of the below logo versions will be best suited for maximum effect.


The primary logo color selected for use until 2014 was PMS #7455 / U Warm Blue (CMYK 80/73/0/0, RGB 77/89/171).

A palette of secondary logo colors which can be used to present an alternate version consists of the following colors:

  • PMS #625 / U Green
  • PMS #227 / U Rose Red
  • PMS #7459 / U Cool Blue

When the opportunity arises to design multi-color applications, a wide range of colors have been specified for use in selection. These palette colors can serve as a general visual guide for any kind of color selection. For print communications, we strongly recommend that any color selection be made from these PMS specifications.
