New Rotary Logo is Brand Visual ID

This is the new Rotary logo. It is Rotary's new visual identity of its brand image. It can be displayed in three colors of blue (royal, azure and sky) and always with a gold master mark which is called  the Mark of Excellence. There are black and white versions of the logo as well.

You will notice the new logo is now being used above in our website masthead. You will begin seeing it replace logos in stationary, flyers, posters and almost all printed or displayed materials.

This is not the Rotary logo any longer. It is the one we are so familiar with. It is, however, still with us. It is called the Rotary badge which serves as the basis of our lapel pins.

In its effort to create and express a more contemporary look, Rotary's visual identification has undergone a top-to-bottom reformatting, recoloring, and visual restatment of our brand image. 

The whole story with examples and downloadable graphics can be found at the Rotary Brand Center.

FirstWEEK 43: A quick refresher this week on the First Object of Rotary: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. To me, it's a reminder we are not necessarily just a service organization. We are, in fact, an organization of members who believe in and perform service. We use our Rotary clubs as the vehicle for that service. As a member you, a customer of Rotary, are our most valuable commodity.

Thank you for being a Rotarian.

District ConferenceDistrict Conference is growing near. Remember, if you can only attend lunch, sign up just for lunch. Dinner only, sign up just for dinner. How about just a breakout or two, that also works. We start at 10 am, May 16th, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, in Daytona Beach. Registrations are coming in early this year. We will sell out, so don't be left out.
