INTRODUCTION

This document is intended for the prospective users of the official emblems and logotype of FISU. It describes the conditions and standards for their correct and effective use.

The FISU emblem and the designations for FISU sporting events are "copyrighted" and are protected names.

This means that they cannot be modified in any way.

Only FISU may authorize the use of its properties or delegate their use to an Organising Committee or a third party. In each case, the use of its properties must be done in accordance with the spirit and regulations of FISU. Any grant, license or commercial use must contain the appropriate FISU regulation and be respected by the parties concerned.

CONDITIONS OF USE

The emblems and designations must be used in the same manner for all aspects of the event, whether printed or under another form. The designation may come from the language of the host country, but it must also appear in English and French unless authorised by FISU.


The designation of the event along with the FISU emblem must appear on all official and promotional materials and in all the facilities and surroundings (starting numbers, scoring boards, billboards in all the stadiums and sports venues, flags and billboards surrounding the sports facilities).


The emblem for the event must conform with the directions in the present manual and must be approved by FISU Executive Commitee. The use of the emblem for the event is authorized for commercial purposes. However, the emblem may not be associated with the name of a certain commercial company when used on official documents or at official ceremonies. In all circumstances, the association with another name or logo may not alter the official emblem; it may not exceed one-fourth of the size of the official emblem.

ORIGIN OF THE EMBLEM

The official FISU emblem was inspired by the 'U' from University accompanied by five stars that symbolise the 5 continents.


The original emblem (1), created by the C.U.S.I. (Italian University Sports Center) during the Universiade'59, symbolised FISU for 30 years. FISU has recently renewed the design of its emblem (2) in order to improve the consistency of the emblems at the FISU events.


The emblem consists of a black letter 'U' printed on a white background, centred over 5 stars divided into two lines. The 3 upper stars are from left to right respectively : blue, black and red; and the 2 lower stars are yellow and green. The 'FISU' logotype, in black, is centred beneath the stars
