In July 1923, the International Union of Railways (UIC) was officially pronounced an association formed in accordance with the French law of 1901. In 1926, it acquired a logo which would be re-worked or updated on several occasions – in 1950, 1985, 2003 and most recently in 2010 (the new visual identity adopted in 2010 combines the logo in its new colour scheme underpinning all UIC activities.)
