During 2001, when France was considering launching digital terrestrial television under socialist rule, proposals were drafted to give the public broadcaster France Télévision three new digital television channels. Meanwhile, the political powers changed to a conservative government who were less favourable to public television. The result was that six digital channels would be given to public broadcasters, with the existing broadcasters and a parliamentary channel occupying five of the slots, leaving only one new channel for France Télévisions.
As there is no new funding added, a proposal to launch Festival on digital terrestrial television is made. They eventually settle on the name France 4, as the broadcasters exsiting channels were called France 2, France 3 and France 5.
Festival is renamed France 4 and launches on digital terrestrial television on March 31, 2005.
Now used as the alternative logo (according to French Wikipedia).
On March 31, 2014, France 4 reverted to the 2008 logo, but, during the date between 2008 and 2011, this logo was used as the secondary logo. However, this logo was made official in 2014 but it left the "france" wordmark unlike other four channels.
