Cost of replacing the Scottish Government briefing backdrop: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

The total cost of replacing the Scottish Government briefing backdrop following the realisation of it looking like the Russian navy flag.


The white with blue Saltire version of the Scottish Government logo was part of the organisation's brand guidelines. Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Scottish Government is no longer using this version of the logo.

Replacing the on-screen, digital graphic, used as a backdrop to briefings, is undertaken in-house and incurs no cost.
