The official logo of the Definition of Free Cultural Works was designed by Marc Falzon, and placed in the public domain:

An SVG copy can be found here (it will not load correctly in Firefox, but has been tested in Inkscape.)

The logo represents both the diversity of human culture, and the openness and freedom to interact with free cultural works. Please feel free to create derivatives of this logo, and upload them to this wiki.


Most importantly, we are trying to create convenient buttons for all Free Culture Licenses which meet the criteria of the definition. These buttons can be used to "tag" works. Furthermore, instead of linking only to a copy of the license using these buttons, you can link to a page on this site which explains and refers to the license, but also explains our definition of freedom! This will help us to build a community that cares about freedom.


These are just first drafts of how such buttons could look. If you want to work with these templates, you can download buttons.svg and edit it in Inkscape.
