Blinky the fish

Our first website logo was created by our then-webmaster and then-coordinator, M. "Hannibal" Toal. We have updated the logo only a few times in our history. Our current website is based on the FreeDOS fish mascot designed by Bas Snabilie.

The FreeDOS fish mascot is named Blinky. The short story behind this is Jim wanted to have a mascot for FreeDOS, and really wanted a seal. He thought a seal would go well with the Linux penguin mascot. But there was already another FreeDOS program called SEAL with the obvious mascot. Instead, we chose a fish. Bas Snabilie designed our FreeDOS fish mascot. We named him "Blinky" because of his googly eye.

The fish was later adapted to SVG format by Mateusz Viste. Updated wordmark by Jim Hall.

How to use the logo

When using the FreeDOS logo in print media, do not use grey shading. The standard FreeDOS fish is either blue-gray (#BFCFE7) or white, never grey. If you cannot print in color, please use a black and white image.

The official FreeDOS website colors are steel blue (#4682B4) with an orange (#FFA500) accent. Only use the FreeDOS logo on a white or steel blue background. Text should be black on a white background.
