Figure 2.30. Regulation Symbols.
2.16. Sports and Recreation Symbols. The sports and recreation symbols shown in Figure 2.31 are
based on designs developed for the 1972 Olympic Games. These symbols are authorized for use on
signs that identify recreational facilities. Use National Park Service recreation symbols for those
activities that are not covered by the Olympic symbols. Some typical National Park Service
recreation symbols are included below.
2.16.1. Description. The symbols should be used as shown with black or dark brown pictographs
against a white background. See the description of the Type C5 Recreational Facility Sign in
paragraph 4.31 for more information.
2.16.2. Border. The border should always be square with rounded corners as shown. The line
weight of the border should be consistent for all symbols.
