Pharmacy, in a general sense, is a science and practice of discovering, preparing, dispensing, and reviewing drugs.
It’s a broad science, closely related to medicine, natural sciences, and pharmaceutical science.
The term Pharmacy or Chemists can also mean an establishment in which pharmacy (science) is practiced.
Universal symbols of pharmacies are mortar and pestle, Rod of Asclepius, Bowl of Hygieia, and a green cross.
These are also the most common design elements you can find in pharmacy logos.
Shades of blue and green are the dominant colors in pharmacy logo pallets. Blue and green, in this case, are associated with hygiene, sanitation, and purity.
However, the pharmacy industry is very diverse. It’s impossible to limit it to these shapes and colors alone.
You can see some of that diversity on our list below.
