The FIG logotype
The circle represents unity.
Its line never ends a perpetual new beginning. It also represents the space in which time and events take place.
The circle represents the world.
Thus, the unity of time as well as that of space and the actions which take place within it express the universal nature of gymnastics.
The sphere is crisscrossed with longitudinal and latitudinal lines, messengers of physical and spiritual development through the practice of gymnastics, by virtue of the FIG's fundamental principles as described in its Statutes.
The Federation adds its signature, the FIG mark, to the universal nature of gymnastics.
This mark is a reminder that the universe of gymnastics works within its own rules, which are contained in its
Statutes and recognised at all levels of its federation structure.
The foundation date lies behind the symbol and gives it the authority and credibility inspired by the year 1881.
