ICF BUTTERFLY LOGO - HISTORY & USE
Introducing our ICF Logo
The International Camping Fellowship logo is the universal ICF symbol, the buttterfly. From the Guidelines for Usage it is easy to see how it extends naturally from the past to the future: Our logo puts the ‘environment’ at the heart of ICF. With its green colour palette it manifests our care and love for the nature.
History Of Original Logo
The theme of the Second International Camping Congress in 1987 was "Our Fragile World". The congress planning committee asked a group of student artists to design a logo for the congress. When the work of one of the students was presented with a map of the world on the wings of a butterfly, words could not express the feeling that swept through the room-"Yes! This was it!"
We all know that the life of a butterfly is very short, but this is a very special butterfly. The Butterfly logo was given to the International Camping Fellowship by the American Camp Association to represent the work of the ICF year after year. It has lived and traveled around the world for almost 25 years because it lives in the hearts of all of us. Let us keep it alive to promote peace, understanding, and fellowship in our world of camping.
