All non-governmental organizations — NGOs — affiliated with the UN have been formally reminded that the use by NGOs of the official UN logo is strictly prohibited. This is the familiar logo showing the view of the world from the North Pole, surrounded by two olive branches. Under no circumstances may we use this logo on our publications, websites, stationery or other materials. There are very serious consequences for NGOs that violate this rule, including loss of our affiliation with the UN. If you have questions, please contact the NGO Office.
