BTS Old Logo (2013-2016)
There are almost four types of BTS Logo used since 2013. There were some alterations but the main idea and designed remained the same.
The old Logo of BTS was quite cluttered. It was a bulletproof vest showcased with a lot of specifics on its front. It was in white or silver against the black background, as well as a BTS inscription. Also, both sides of the vest were gardened with a lightning bolt together with outward spikes creating a circular ring around the vest.
The emblem was perfectly centered for the “firepower” theme. It blends well with the band’s old name – “BTS” when it means “Bangtan Sonyeondan,” in Korean, translated as “Bulletproof Boy Scouts.”
With their uprising success in 2016, BTS took a turn with their Logo. It changed from an intense vest design to a more sophisticated yet profound one. BTS symbol in 2016 was embraced with four spheres, with each having a unique design. While “Wings” in Black are engraved in the bottom.
In Early 2017, the BTS symbol followed the same pattern of four ellipses but was empty this time. Each circle traversing end to end with two ellipses. There lie letters “Wings” and “You Never Walk Alone,” spanning two lines in blue.
BTS new logo appeared as the two pairs of trapezoids facing the shortest sides. The trapezoids epitomize half-open doors from the inside and outside and personifying mirror images of each other.
What is the meaning of the BTS Logo?
Get to know the meaning of the BTS Logo.
The Logo gives the impression of “Doors.” The two doors consider as if they are opening in a different world with BTS font.
BTS logo means ARMY and BTS reunion at the door, said BTS on their official Twitter
“Us And Army Becoming One Together.”
The new BTS logo symbolizes the youth that does not settle down to reality but opens doors to move forward to grow. And ARMY Logo was visually designed to confront the BTS members, opening the doors to a new world. The meaning of the group extends the general idea of uniting the past and the future. Since their debut, BTS expressed themselves as
“Boys who stop the oppression and prejudice that teens face in the judgmental society,”
Lately, BTS meaning has changed and kept as “Beyond the Scene,” which means “Youth that does not settle down to reality their dreams.” Hybe Labels explained that they defined and visualized BTS icon with diversity and future orientation to include all concepts of their albums or their promotions.
Moreover. “The new BTS Logo was a result from incorporating plans of the nation’s best design consulting team to collecting data of fan’s desires through research, company staffs and the BTS members that took almost a year.”
The Logo comprises two parts:
“The ARMY” (two trapezoids representing the half-open doors outside)
“BTS” (two trapezoids symbolizing the half-open doors inside)
There’s a unique twist in these two parts. When we join both logos as the ARMY half is placed underneath the BTS, put on top of it, it completes as a shield. The shield towards the harsh world. The Logo is silver on the black background.
