UIPM Logos

The Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne conducted a branding review in late 2017 resulting in the production of two new emblems representing the growth of UIPM Sports with Modern Pentathlon at the pinnacle.


The marketing logo contains the tagline "World Pentathlon" which is introduced to the UIPM branding portfolio as a means of emphasizing the global reach of UIPM, which governs the core Olympic sport of Modern Pentathlon as well as Laser-Run, World Schools Biathlon, Biathle/Triathle and Tetrathlon.


The new institutional logo, which is primarily for internal use, aims to communicate the historic pentathlon family values aligned to the dynamic future of UIPM Sports. The logo features two original colours that represent the pentathlon environment: yellow (symbolizing dynamic development) and blue (standing for longevity and power). Gender equality is also reflected with the addition of two female pictograms.
