The symbols[edit | edit source]
We are celebrating Wikimania with a wide range of symbols, created in collaboration with the Wikimania Committee and illustrated by Karabo Poppy Moletsane and Jasmina El Bouamraoui.
The symbols represent the spirit of Wikimania in four core themes: Connection, collaboration, community celebration and learning.
Feel free to use the symbols that are most meaningful to you. You are also welcome to use the Wikipedia 20 symbols, available here.
Using the designs for other materials[edit | edit source]
The Wikimania symbols can be used to produce merchandise, identify special web pages or other digital content, make posters or banners, name tags and much more. Below are a few examples that show how the symbols can be used. Use these templates to make your own designs.
Please make them to share! But please do not use the name "Wikipedia" to sell any items, or for other uses without checking the trademark policy.
