What is Hogwarts Logo

Hogwarts is a fictional magic school created for the book franchise ‘Harry Potter’ by J. K. Rowling. The first book was written in 1997, although it wasn’t until 2001 that the school appeared on film. It’s in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (the full name) that much of the plot of the books takes place.

Hogwarts Logo

The central piece of this logo is golden shield styled as a ribbon, parchment or some other flexible, thin material. Its front is divided into 4 sections by a cross converging in the middle. Clockwise from the top right, the sections represent the school’s houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.

Gryffindor has a red background with a golden lion illustrated on it. Slytherin has a silver snake put onto a green background. For Ravenclaw, it’s a bronze eagle with a blue background. Hufflepuff is a yellow background with a black badger. The point of convergence between them bears a big black ‘H’ for ‘Hogwarts’.

Sometimes there’s also a golden ribbon with a school’s motto below the main part. The motto says ‘Never tickle a sleeping dragon’ in Latin using a similar font as the big ‘H’.
