Pirate Party of Canada

This branding guide aims to unify promotional material for the Pirate Party of Canada. In addition, to keep with the spirit of the Open Source movement, the PPCA makes its identity documents freely available in open-source formats. All PPCA logos and documents use fonts from the FreeFont family: FreeSans in the logo and document headers, and FreeSerif in body text.

You may make pamphlets any way you like.

Be sure to also check out our accessibility guide.

Official Colour

The official color is a registered piece of bureaucracy with elections canada. Within your own promotional materials, use whatever purple color looks best.

On August 2014, a darker purple colour, hex code # #5B027A or #500778 (Pantone # 2607 coated) was formally adopted as the new party flag colour. Exact purple colour for other merchandize might vary a bit depending on availability and ability to procure merchandize with that colour (e.g. clothing).

With a clean silhouette, this logo is our most identifiable branding as a political movement.
