Minnesota State Logos
The Minnesota logo is approachable with a reliable and authoritative character that Minnesotans can trust. The colors pay homage to the woods and waters that drew the first Minnesotans to the Land of 10,000 Lakes from near and far. Together our logo and brand give us a recognizable, memorable way to communicate and share our values, our resources, our stories and everything we love about our state as a place to visit, do business and call home.
This page walks through the look of the state logo. Do not alter or change the Minnesota logo. Use the Minnesota logo instead of an agency logo when possible.
