The Forum logo

logo

The butterfly, the air, and the land
The centrepiece of our new logo is a butterfly which symbolises the urgent need for greater sustainability overall, and especially to protect and enhance biodiversity. A butterfly already featured in our original logo – but our new one has evolved to become multi-dimensional. Look closely and you can see the butterfly change into a landscape. The top, pale blue half, is the sky and the green lower half is fields of crops and forests.

Why a butterfly?
We chose to include a butterfly in our logo many years ago because their presence indicates the health of an ecosystem.
We feel their role is more important than ever in a world facing biodiversity loss.

The colours of nature
We have carefully chosen colours for our new branding that represent the importance of nature in tackling climate change, halting biodiversity loss, protecting water, and transforming our food systems to provide nutritious, healthy and safe food for the growing global population.

Forum colors

Growth green: Emphasizes that agriculture needs to be regenerative, protecting our environment while providing food security.

Air and water blue: Draws attention to the potential for agriculture to capture carbon from the air to mitigate climate change and highlights the importance of water in agriculture.

Earth orange: Highlights the importance of healthy soil in capturing carbon and maintaining crop yields.

Our name and our purpose bring continuity
We are still the Forum for the Future of Agriculture (Forum for Ag in brief). Our purpose is as true today as when we were formed – to be the place where agriculture and environment meet for an open dialogue. We have kept this statement in our new logo, linking our evolution with our history.
