Toki Pona logo

The Toki Pona logo or symbol is a circle with three floating lines (emitters) above it, and a curve representing a smile inside. It is typically colored with ultramarine blue lines and an icterine yellow fill. It is retrofitted into sitelen pona as the combined glyph for toki pona (toki-pona).

The logo and its color scheme have been incorporated into many proposed mascot characters, often playing on the symbol's similarity to a smiling head.
