The Logo History

The original logo of the United States Institute of Peace was designed in 1986 to incorporate two components:

The dove, designed by President George Washington as the weather vane for his home at Mount Vernon, symbolizes the traditional American commitment to the cause of peace.

The tree is based on the Connecticut "Peace Tree," later known as the "Charter Oak." Used by the Suckiauke Indians as a site for peace councils, the tree served colonists as a hiding place for their charter of liberty in 1687 when they were seeking freedom from England. The tree symbolizes the values of peace and freedom.

The logo was re-designed in 1990 as part of an expansion of Institute outreach activities and to make it easier to reproduce digitally. It has become a widely recognized symbol of the work of the U.S. Institute of Peace.
