The Fibonacci Logos

The "Fibonacci Star", or pentagram, on the left is the official logo of the Fibonacci Association. It first appeared on the cover of the Fibonacci Quarterly in October, 1964, on Volume 2, Number 3. For some historical notes and a brief descritpion of the mathematics behind the pentagram, see the following two articles by Colonel Robert S. Beard, published in the Fibonacci Quarterly:
  • "Fibonacci Drawing Board", Vol. 2, No. 3, October 1964, pp. 161 - 161.
    [page 1] [page 2]

  • "Star Geometry", Vol. 4, No. 1, February 1966, pp. 70 - 72.
    [page 1] [page 2] [page 3]

  • The main diagram associated with the star can be found on page 2 of the second article.

The colorful logo on the right was designed by Massimo Malvetti of the University of Luxembourg for the Ninth International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and Their Applications.

This logo combines the "logarithmic spiral" with the "Fibonacci tiling". Further information can be found at
