Burger King unveiled a new logo for its brand in 2021.

Burger King just got a new logo after more than 20 years. In early January 2021, the fast-food brand unveiled its look, showing they were ditching their old blue curve in favor of a more minimalist design.

The new look emulates an old logo used from 1969 to 1999. The chain said the font is inspired by the shapes of its food because it's "rounded, bold and yummy." Burger King also revealed redesigned packaging and employee uniforms, which they said mix “contemporary and comfortable style with distinctive colors and graphics."

This tweet compares the current logo to past versions:

Burger King's Chief Marketing Officer Fernando Machado told Insider that they removed the blue streak from the logo because "there's no blue food."

Given that the rebranded logo has been applied to their verified Twitter account and other spaces online, we rate this claim as “True.”
