The Science Council of Canada’s logo is made up of three identical circle shapes. Each circle is bisected with 30% of its form removed; all three have a hollowed out middle.
One of the circles is centred above the other two. The overall shape of the logo represents the initial letters of the Council’s title: S, C and C.
While there is no apparent Canadian trademark record, the Science Council of Canada’s logo would have had the status of a mark of the Government of Canada.
