IPA Emblem Crest & Roundel Design

Arthur Troop, the Founder of IPA, designed the IPA emblem during the 1950’s and was officially adopted at the 1st International IPA Congress in Paris, France during September 1955. Models of the two protected forms (crest and roundel) are kept by the International Secretary General at the International Administrative Center.

The emblems of the IPA are protected by copyright and may only be used within the framework of activities that are directly linked to the Association.
