Brand Standards

The red cross emblem is an international symbol protected by law and is part of the Geneva Conventions. In New Zealand, the Minister of Defence must give authority for its use. Apart from the New Zealand Defence Force, only New Zealand Red Cross has permission to use it in New Zealand. 

Our Brand Standards provide more information around this, how the emblem is to be used as part of our logo, how the logo must be represented, our fonts and colours, examples and guidelines on our visual representation for vehicles, buildings, uniforms and promotional material.
