Logo: We see a rhombus with "Jadran" and a cursive "film" at the bottom. The cursive "F" is going through the letter "A" in the word "JADRAN". Below the rhombus is the cursive word "prikazuje".


  • An early variant exists on Plavi 9 where the rhombus is absent and "PRIKAZJUE" is in a paint-like font.
  • In some instances, "PRIKAZJUE" may also be written in different styles.
    • U oluji, Koncert, Nasi se putovi razilaze and H-8 have "prikazuje" in a handwritten format, although the styles are different.
    • Some films including Samo Ijudi, Sreća Dolazi u 9 and Pogled u zjenicu sunca have "prikazuje" in a thin font.
  • Starting in 1960, "JADRAN" has now become thicker.
  • Some instances contain the logo with "Proizvodnja" above the rhombus.
    • Deveti krug and Da li je umro dobar čovek has "Proizvodnja" in a handrwritten style.
    • Sjenka slave is the only film that has "proizvodnja" in a thin font.
  • Most of its films don't contain any text notice around the rhombus.
  • the "f" in "film" may also differ handwriting-wise.
    • For instance, Opsada and Breza has the "f" curving between "A" and "D" in "JADRAN".
    • Svoga tela gospodar has the "f" curving behind the "D".
  • In Opsada, "PRODUKCIJA" can be seen above with a text notice saying:

  • The standard variant can be seen on most Croatian films from the Early 1950's up to the late 1960's, where it made its debut appearance on U oluji, and made its final appearance on Gravitacija ili fantastična mladost činovnika Horvata.
