Hong Kong Top Brand Mark (Top Mark)

            

Ordinary Mark                Premier Mark

The Hong Kong Top Brand Mark ("Top Mark") is the distinctive visual symbol of Hong Kong Top Brand Awards (formerly Hong Kong Top Ten Brandnames Awards), Hong Kong Top Service Brand Awards, and Hong Kong Top Brand Mark Scheme.

Winners of “Hong Kong Top Brand”, “Hong Kong Premier Brand”, “Hong Kong Top Service Brand” and “Hong Kong Premier Service Brand” could apply for Hong Kong Top Brand Mark Scheme by product/service categories and will, if meeting the assessment requirements, be conferred a licence to use the “Top Mark” for business promotion in relation to the brand, the winning company or certified product/service categories.

Organisations authorised to use the Mark shall ensure that it is used in compliance with the regulation and requirements laid down in the "Hong Kong Top Brand Mark Regulations" and "Terms and Conditions" of the Awards, and it shall endeavour to ensure Top Mark is used according to “Identity Guide for Hong Kong Top Brand Mark”.

The “Top Mark” was designed under the supervision of Mr Kan Tai Keung. The Mark is mainly a combination of a seal and a “TOP”, signifying authority, credential and prominence; the letter “T” and “O” are tangential to make up a letter “b”, which together imply “Top Brand”. The Ordinary Mark is in primary blue and red, while the Premier Mark is gold in colour to signify prestige and superiority.
