This CBC logo, officially known internally as "the gem," was designed for the CBC by graphic artist Burton Kramer in 1974, and it is the most widely recognized symbol of the corporation. (It was also dubbed "The Exploding Pizza" in the press at the time, and is still sometimes referred to that way today.) The appearance of this logo marked the arrival of full-colour network television service. The large shape in the middle is the letter C, which stands for Canada, and the radiating parts of the C symbolize broadcasting. The theme music for the 1974 CBC ident was a 3-note synthesized fanfare accompanied by the voiceover "This is CBC."
The logo was officially changed to one colour, generally dark blue on white, or white on dark blue in 1986. Print ads and most television promos, however, have always used a single-colour version of this logo since 1974.
