This logo was originally created for a Nupedia logo competition by the Wikipedia user Bjornism in 2000.
In November 2001, Wikipedia users began suggesting new logos for the site; a short list of twenty-four leading candidates was chosen for the first Wikipedia logo contest, which took place from November to December 2001. The winner of the contest was the last submission, made by the user The Cunctator.
September-October 2003 (original variant)
In 2003, another logo contest for the site was held, and took place from July 20 to August 27, 2003. The winning submission was created by the user Paullusmagnus, and was adopted by Wikipedia on September 26, 2003.
This logo was created by the user Nohat as a redesign of the winning submission of the 2003 contest, and it was officially adopted by Wikipedia on October 12, 2003. Nohat made some minor changes to it (pictured above), and that version was officially adopted a few days later.
A new logo was introduced in May 2010 that was designed by Philip Metschan, and was later amended to more closely resemble its predecessor. The word "WIKIPEDIA" was modified, and the words "The Free Encyclopedia" was unitalicized; the logo's typeface was also changed from Hoefler Text to Linux Libertine.
- There are many symbols representing the many different languages of the site.
- The ball has puzzle pieces because it is being built and put together, and pieces are missing to reinforce that Wikipedia will never be truly complete.
