Coat of arms

Authors: Arūnas and Agnius Tarabildai, 1994. The coat of arms is in a black frame while there are three stylized silver pines with three golden as if royal crowns of Čiurlionis style, on their tops in its blue background. Pines hold their twigs as if hands and are full of natural Druskininkai wealth. The pyramid triangle is dominant as well as sacral numbers: three, six and nine.

City brand

Author: Emilija Užukauskienė, 2008. The logo consists of the resort’s main symbols – its pine trees, its mineral water streams, and its pump-room, all of which symbolise the natural and therapeutic resources of Druskininkai and the tourist infrastructure. The main version of the sign is a green pump-room and a name, as well as blue tones of water streams, and the pines. The logo can be used with the slogan ‘Druskininkai is a resort of wellness springs’.
