Civitan Branding Guide
We Are Civitan! We were founded out of a desire to support our local communities on a level that meant more than just personal networking. We’ve since evolved into an international community of doers; individuals who are bound together with a common passion to follow The Golden Rule.
Civitan has a proud history of being trailblazers. We were the first volunteer service organization to open membership to women. We were the first volunteer service organization to allow people of color to join clubs. We are the only volunteer service organization that has a mission that supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are an organization of strong and bold individuals who collectively work together to uplift others.
It is important that our organization is represented in the same light whether we are in the Great Lakes of Michigan, the rivers in Alabama, or the mountains of Norway. In all four corners of the world, wherever there is a Civitan club, we must work together to ensure Civitan is presented under a cohesive brand.
Our logo, the Civitan seal, is a visual representation of the foundation set by our founders and their growing legacy. It represents the work we do within our communities and globally through the Civitan International Research Center.
The Civitan seal is the most used Civitan logo. The seal should always be used in an upright position, with one scalloped edge in the 12 o’clock position. The seal can be used alone on any of your club’s marketing materials as it is the most recognizable.

“We Are Civitan” Logo
“We Are Civitan” is a sub-brand of the parent brand of Civitan International. It was created to reach a new audience, who would identify better with a theme associated with the parent brand (the logo Civitan has used for decades).
In the past, International Presidents have introduced a theme for their governors and others to rally around. This developed sub-brand of “We Are Civitan” allows for that rallying to still happen, but with a more consistent message that reflects the parent brand.
The Civitan seal is available in all five official colors of Civitan International, include traditional Civitan blue and yellow, light grey, dark blue, white. The various color options are available for use on different backgrounds. For instance, the white version of the Civitan seal can be used as a watermark or used on darker backgrounds.
Civitan International has adopted the following fonts to maintain a consistent look when putting together presentations to brochures. If your computer does not have one of these fonts, consider using an alternative. These fonts were selected based on existing branding and their readability.
