50 Chinese-Themed Logos for the New Year

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Are you ready for the year of the Tiger? Celebrate Chinese New Year with a new logo. 

2022 is the year of the Water Tiger, one of the zodiacs. The Tiger is the third out of 12 zodiacs and is considered the king of the beasts.

According to a legend, the Jade Emperor wanted to replace the Lion because it was too ferocious. The Tiger replaced the Lion after defeating the guardians of the Jade Emperor when the Tiger ascended into the Heavenly Palace.

Aside from that, the Tiger has three vertical lines overlapped by a horizontal line because he defeated the Lion, the Bear, the Horse, and the East Sea Turtle Monster to gain peace for the mortal realm.

In line with that, the Tiger, as a Zodiac, represents confidence, bravery, fortune, and strength. This year will be a strong one for all of us. We hope.

And because it’s Chinese New Year in three weeks, here are unique logos you could try out to celebrate and use for years to come.
