The Central Vigilance Commission has adopted a logo. The logo consists of a graphic representation of an eye encased within the letter “C”. The eye represented in a pleasing blue colour is symbolic of the collective determination of the community to be vigilant against any erosion of rights through illegal and improper actions of public servants. Encased within the letter “C” the eye represents the Commission oversees the vigilance administration in all public organisations and help in arriving at quick and logical decisions in all vigilance cases. The logo has grouped positive and negative elements within it and the deliberate choice of the blue colour signifies an active, ever vigilant but positive and friendly Central Vigilance Commission.
The logo has been designed especially for the Commission by the renowned Graphic Designer, Shri Binoy Sarkar.
