In 1997, the iconic logo features a space atmosphere, several light rays form where it reveals the planet earth with its continents "glowing", they disappear when the company name "UNIVERSAL" arches around in front of the globe.

For its 100th anniversary in 2012, the current iconic logo is introduced. The camera pans over the earth with the sun goes behind, causing the lights on the continents to glow. The company name arches in front of the globe and the owner company byline appears below.
