After more than 50 years, St. Raphael’s has decided to change the way it looks with a new identity and a fresh appearance. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, we are no longer members of the Irish League of Credit Unions and our previous logo emanated from our membership. Secondly, our old logo was showing its age and did not reflect the dynamic, innovative and member-focused organisation that we aim to be.
Although it looks quite different, there are key elements the same. We have retained the four circles, representing the four provinces of Ireland. We kept to the traditional Garda colours; the two shades of blue and the gold, a clear reference to the Garda badge. The four interconnecting shapes represent the co-operative nature of the credit union and the strong, confident lines reflect our strength and security. Over the coming weeks and months, you will see us using our new logo in lots of different forms. We believe the new identity respects the past while looking to the future. We hope you like it as much as we do.
