Our choice in colours represents our identity and values
Green was selected because it is a colour that suggests adaptability, new and fresh. The EYF is constantly changing to be able to respond to the needs of young people. The different grants, new regulations and website, were all designed to better serve youth NGOs. Green is also the colour of growth, vitality, reliability and flexibility; the anticipation of thing to come. It is a colour that represents belonging and social gathering, symbolic for the family of organisations and networks supported by the Foundation.
The colour blue is synonymous of communication and the electronic age. The EYF encourages youth NGOs to take advantage of the new tools available and get in touch with staff if needed. Blue is also the colour of innovation and teaching, of reliability and care; all these are characteristics of the EYF.
In 2019 the Council of Europe celebrates its 70th anniversary, for which a commemorative logo has been created. All EYF-supported projects in 2019 must include this element in their communication, along with the Council of Europe logo and the EYF visual identity. The 70th anniversary logo can be found here.

Visual identity for light background
Visual identity for dark background
- We highly recommend you use the original EYF visual identity in colour.
- CoE logo should always be on right to EYF visual identity.
- You should keep the ratio of the image and if the size is adapted, keep in mind that the text should still be legible (for both EYF & COE).
- In relation to other logos or page layout: if you plan to use the logo in the footer/at the bottom of page, we prefer to be given acknowledgement by being presented on the bottom right hand side; if on top/header, rather be on the top left hand side.
- You can use the other colours of the logo and visual identity, if these are more appropriate for your background, purpose etc.
