The Scratch Logo is the logo of Scratch shown in the upper-left corner of all parts of the Scratch Website and applications (including the Offline Editor). The logo was changed to a simple, modern version with the introduction of Scratch 2.0, although it retains the same basic shape and orange color as the previous one. The Scratch logo is also a part of the Scratch Wiki logo, underneath the globe. The Scratch Logo was slightly changed on October 16, 2015.
The text of the word "Scratch" was created using the Scratch Font.

- Had dimensions of 198 by 60 pixels
If the Scratch Team liked a logo, it was shown on the Scratch homepage on its corresponding holiday. However, starting around Thanksgiving 2010, the Scratch Team stopped changing the logo because it was giving them difficulty. Several users started uploading unrelated logos on the thread.
On the Scratch Wiki
The Scratch Wiki's original logo was the default logo for MediaWiki, the platform on which the Scratch Wiki operates. Soon afterwards, the official logo was changed to the text "Scratch Wiki" in Scratch font. This was later changed to the current logo of the Scratch Cat on the puzzle globe, which appears at the top-left of all pages.
New Year's 2014
For New Year's in 2014, the Scratch Wiki celebrated by changing the logo temporarily to a New Year's celebratory logo, created by the user turkey3. It was a slightly modified version of the normal logo, with the addition of fireworks and Gobo hidden in the background. It was put up on January 1, Scratch Time, although it was still New Year's Eve in some time zones. The logo remained in place for several days, and on January 5 was reverted to the normal logo.
