This website section helps you in how to implement visibility rules. It is meant primarily for project lead partners, partners and their graphics designers. The logos, maps and labels may also be used by other parties for contributing to the implementation of or promoting Interreg Baltic Sea Region.
Mandatory visibility files
This section is relevant to all projects, those which develop their own visual identity and those who use the project logo and design guide provided by the Programme (see below) as well as to EUSBSR stakeholders.
For acknowledgement of support from the Funds:
This file package provides different file versions of the Programme logo (solo), the EU flag (solo) and the combined Programme logo and EU flag. The MA/JS recommends to use the latter when possible. The package contains versions with solid and transparent backgrounds, and different file types (.jpg for office use, .png for web use and .ai for designers).

!!!Note that there are very specific requirements which need to be taken into account when using the files (i.e. when positioning and sizing logos in a publication): make sure to apply the visibility rules.
Guidance on correct use of the EU emblem
This document aims at clarifying how the EU emblem (or „EU flag“) can be used correctly in communication of Interreg Baltic Sea Region projects. It is meant for communication managers and project partners as well as their service-providers. In the document, we point to where the rules can be found, we interpret the corresponding regulations in the context of our Programme and we provide examples from the projects. You can download the file or flip thorugh it below.

Project poster template
Template & Guidance for Project Posters: Each project partner nneds to place at least one poster with information about the project (minimum size A3) at a location visible to the public, such as the entrance area of a building/office. The poster has to display the objective of the project and the amount of EU financial support. You can use this template to implement the poster, but you are also free to design your own.

Project design guide
If you do not want to develop your own visual identity, you are invited to make use of the project design guide. It provides the basic features such as a set of colours, font type, design grid and explains how to use the project logo and the templates provided by the MA/JS. It is also a document that can be readily passed on to project partners, graphic designers and others involved in implementing your project. With this guide, you do not need to lose time and money for visual identity development when you want to get your project started.
