The current flag

BP stations changed logo about two years ago to a green and yellow pattern looking like a stylised flower.
James Dignan, 19 May 2004

In 2000 the logo referred to by James was adopted and became incorporated on a flag which I have seen flying over buildings. The design is a sunburst in green, yellow and white being named the Helios mark after the ancient Greek sun god and represents the dynamic energy of oil, gas and solar provided by the company and is not a new logo in that it resembles a marble motif appearing in the London HQ since the 1920s. Accosted with this are the green letters "bp".

The Helios logo is not used by the BP Shipping Company as a flag. The present Helios Logo is the responsibility of BP plc, Group Trade Marks, in London.
