Ministry of Education and Culture text logos

The Ministry of Education and Culture mainly uses the lion emblem for its own activities. It may also be used in key partnership projects if the Ministry takes part in the activities.

The text logo is always shown in black, white or a shade of grey, not in colour. Two-line text logos can be used when a one-line text logo is not possible, for example due to space restrictions.

Always download the original logo file. You are not allowed to use any other fonts in the text logo.
