The logo of PICPA is a stylized graphic presentation of the letters C, P and A for Certified Public Accountants. It is also a geometric design of clasped hands symbolizing the unification of accounting groups into a solid, cohesive and responsive national organization of Certified Public Accountants. The clear and concise design with elements emanating from top and bottom and neatly meeting at the center also shows the integration of the kindred and diverse components of the accounting profession. The balanced perspective of the design represents the basic objective of accountants – balanced accounts in all transactions.
The dark blue and dark green arrows at the center going outward and duplicated in lighter shades signify the accountants’ objectivity and expansiveness as they discharge their functions as guardians of business and economy.
The colors of the logo are green and blue – green to signify growth which is the ultimate goal of the organization and blue to symbolize the vastness and universality of the accounting profession.
