Primary Logo

Mayflower 400 has two primary logos; one with the strap line ‘Steering our future, inspired by the past’ and one without. They are the core identifier logos for Mayflower 400 and are present on all material created for the Mayflower 400 brand.

The primary logo is used to signify official Mayflower 400 events and programmes, for example, the official Mayflower programmes for education, volunteer, cultural or business events are distinguished by the use of the primary logo.

The logo design is a bold, detailed calligraphic logotype and is the anchor of the brand. The logo is made from bespoke typography, based on the calligraphy of the original Mayflower Compact of 1620, and William Bradford’s script. It combines it with an abstract form derived from the Mayflower’s sail.

The primary logos are for use by Mayflower 400 organisation only. Organisations who are contributing to the commemoration should use the relevant secondary branding as listed next.

Founding Partner

This logo is for the founding members of the Mayflower 400 national and international compact partners. It signifies the compact partner’s contribution and position as founding members of the Mayflower 400 partnership and programme of events across the UK. The Founding Partners form the national Mayflower trail destinations and will have a host of their own local programme of events to commemorate Mayflower 400 as well as being part of the national overall programme.
