A new logo for the Canadian Space Agency
The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is modernizing its visual identity with a new simplified logo.
An exciting era of space exploration is unfolding before us, and the CSA seeks to enter this new chapter with a modern identifying symbol.
What does the new logo represent?
The new CSA logo, elegant in its simplicity, features three stars and a maple leaf.
The maple leaf
As Canada's national emblem, the maple leaf generates pride and a sense of belonging, and is also recognized all over the world. It gives the impression of taking flight, symbolizing daring invention and our sights set on the future, ready to push the boundaries of ingenuity and innovation.
The star represents space and symbolizes brilliance, intelligence, and expertise. Its repetition embodies the strength of the community, which includes all those involved in the Canadian space program – industry, scientists, academia, government, and STEM organizations.
Are CSA-branded items featuring the new logo available for purchase?
A new line of CSA-branded items is available to the public at the online boutique managed by our partner Ingenium. Items can also be purchased in person at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa.
Frequently asked questions
Question 1: Why are you changing the logo?
Answer 1: Canada is entering a new era of space exploration. With the return to the Moon, an increasing need for Earth observation data and a growing Canadian space industry, the timing is ideal to give Canada's space program a modern, simplified symbol that is distinctly Canadian and embodies the values of the future-focused space sector.
Question 2: Can I use the logo to create my own apparel?
Answer 2: No. The CSA, on behalf of His Majesty the King in right of Canada, owns the copyright of the logo. The use of the logo without proper authorization infringes on the copyright of the CSA.
Question 3: What is happening to the previous logo?
Answer 3: The new logo will replace the previous one on all communications products. During the transition period, the previous logo may continue to appear in select situations as the CSA works to implement the complete change.
