Spread the word!

megaphone

You found your way here, because - like us - you care about Free Software and digital civil rights. We need your help to spread the word about the advantages of Free Software, and to explain others why they should care about Freedom, too. Advocating for Free Software is fun and arguably one of the best ways to help the Free Software movement! On this page you find a lot of support that helps you: graphics to use, leaflets to print and promotion material to order.

Graphics to use

All graphics you find on this page can be used to promote Free Software in general and the work of FSFE in particular. Feel free to copy, spread and use them as long as you keep clear that - whatever you use it for - is not an official product or the official opinion of the FSFE. Thank you very much for promoting Freedom!

The official logo of the Free Software Foundation Europe. Use it to promote the association of the FSFE and its work.

License: The logo of the FSFE must never be used in a way that could be understood as endorsing certain activities, home pages, products or entities without prior consent of the FSFE. Please contact team (at) fsfeurope.org if you wish to know whether your intended usage is suitable.

This is the logo that represents the Fellowship of the FSFE. Its name is 'Plussy' and the symbol illustrates a human who stands strong for his freedom. At the same time, the human figure opens his arms to include everyone who shares common goals. Finally, the symbol draws a 'plus', because our movement gets stronger with every single identity. Hence, every one who is joining the Fellowship is a plus in the fight for freedom. That is why it is called 'Plussy'.

License: The Fellowship logo (and variations of it) can be used to advertise the Fellowship of the FSFE and in association with any Free Software related activity performed by FSFE Fellows. It can also be incorperated into logos of local Fellowship groups if so desired. However, if you do not have a mandate by FSFE, we ask you not to create the impression that you speak officially for FSFE, or that FSFE has certified or endorsed you to do so in any way.

Fellowship and FSFE supporting graphics

Feel free to use the following graphics and buttons whenever you like to support our work, the Fellowship or Free Software in general. Most icons should be self-explaining. The buttons that show a number can be used to show that you are a Fellow by chosing the number that matches your own Fellowshipnumber. Find the image of your personal number and feel free to use them in any medium you like. Click the thumbs to access a proper file.

Print your own: Leaflets and information material

Graphics are good to attract attention, but sometimes it is better to offer printed material with specific and more detailed information. Volunteers from the FSFE have put a lot of work in writing information material that you can print out at home. You find political leaflets about:
