Debian has two logos. The official logo (also known
open use logo) contains the well-known Debian
swirl and best
represents the visual identity of the Debian Project. A separate, restricted-use logo, also exists for use by the
Debian Project and its members only. To refer to Debian, please prefer the
open use logo.

About the Debian logos
The Debian logos were selected by a vote by the Debian developers in 1999. They were created by Raul Silva. The red color used in the font is nominally Rubine Red 2X CVC. The up-to-date equivalent is either PANTONE Strong Red C (rendered in RGB as #CE0056) or PANTONE Rubine Red C (rendered in RGB as #CE0058). You can find more details about the logos and the reason why PANTONE Rubine Red 2X CVC has been replaced and about other equivalents of the red color on the Debian Logo Wiki Page.
