Organization symbols[edit]


The Human-Covenant war version saw its earliest uses in 2525.[8] A slightly simplified version of the logo was used at Corbulo Academy of Military Science in 2526.[9] The logo continued to see use through much of 2552.[2][4] By 2557, the logo was almost wholly replaced by a new logo.[10] Though the Covenant war logo was still used on the UNSC Infinity at this point.[11] Due to the disappearance of the UNSC Spirit of Fire in 2531, equipment and uniforms from the ship use the Human-Covenant war era logo in 2559.[12] At some point after 2560, the pilot of Pelican Echo 216 had a different, simplified version of this logo.[13]
This logo is often stenciled on equipment, and may be simplified in some applications.[1]
  • Redesigned logo - Following the war, the UNSC's branding was overhauled resulting in a new logo. It can be described as bold, strong, and ascendant.[14]
However, this logo's first uses were in late 2552, appearing on Warthogs and crates,[5][15] before becoming commonplace by 2557.[10]
The logo, saw use on the side of the UNSC Infinity,[10] on the wings of Strident-class heavy frigates,[16] and on the sides of vehicles.[10] A slightly modified version of the logo was used in the UNSC Tactical Simulator, where the word "TACSIM" was added.[17] A partially colored version of the logo was painted on to the floor of a meeting room in HIGHCOM Facility Bravo-6.[18]
A redesigned wordmark was used by the UNSC as early as 2554.[19] By 2557, Some fatigues also had the wordmark printed on it.[20]
