Commemoration Logos

NHHC has created logos to assist commands with their commemoration efforts. Two versions of a Midway commemoration logo are available.

Both JPG (non-transparent background) and PNG (transparent background) formats are available. One version simply states "Midway," while the other states "Battle of Midway"; the latter may be more suitable for audiences less familiar with the historic battle. Both logos are in a resolution suitable for print.
