Logo: On a black background, we see a small Colosseum. The walls are blue and inside is gold with a gold light shining. Below is the text "HELKON SK" in gold lettering with each letter in the word "HELKON" spaced out.

Variants:

  • There is an animated production logo, used only within the years of Helkon SK's existence. The Colosseum appeared on the sunlight, zooming and rotating on the screen.
  • There is also a variant where the walls are lavender.

FX/SFX: The fading, or logo animation for the long version.

Music/Sounds: None. For the long version, it's the sounds of a radar followed by a "whoosh" sound.
