Color: Mark use on background colors

We can use our mark on both light and dark colors as shown in the variety of color examples used on this page. These colors are not part of a specific color palette and are for demonstration purposes only.

This use is possible because of the white outline around the shield, which provides a separation from the background and prevents common conflicts between marks and backgrounds with similar values or hues. The use of subtle textures as shown below also is possible.

Note that the positive-use mark with the blue logotype is used on light backgrounds and the reverse use logo with the white logotype is used on the dark backgrounds. Further explanation of when to use each mark can be found here.
