Used by: Port of Québec (Québec Port Authority)
Used from: 1990’s-2013
The Port of Québec logo is made up of a “Q” symbol consisting of two arrow-like halves, surrounding an empty square centre on a 45-degree angle.
The “Q” symbol appeared in two different corporate signature formats during the 1990’s to the 2010’s.
The first version placed the “Q” symbol to the left of the French and English titles “Société du port de Québec / Port of Quebec Corporation.” The second version placed the symbol inside an oval shape, positioned above the title “Port de/of Québec.”
An entirely new design replaced the “Q” symbol in 2013. It consists of geometric shapes that form overlapping letters “P” and “Q”, which are placed to the left of the title “Port Québec.” This version of the logo is still in use today.
