This page is to help partner organisations of the European Data Protection Supervisor understand how and on what conditions to use the EDPS logo.
The EDPS logo comprises two components: the European flag and a graphic element in form of a wave of binary code. The flag symbolises the institution’s strong relationships and integration with other EU institutions and bodies and data protection authorities, while the wave of binary code reflects the EDPS’ role as the European guardian of data protection, as well as its strength as a dynamic institution that continues to grow in importance and influence.
