On 11 December 2017 at a meeting held in Niamey, Niger, the Board of Directors of OAPI adopted a new logo of the organisation.

The logo contains seventeen abstract elements which are intended to represent the diversity in the organisation – particularly the diversity of its 17 Member States (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros Island, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, Togo.)

Furthermore, the incorporation of the abstract elements in a manner depicting a shield are envisioned to portray the protection which the organisation offers to its users. The yellow and green colour combination is part of an existing graphic chart of the organisation.
