Canvas launched in December 1997, replacing BRTN TV2 along with Ketnet. The new identity was created by Lambie-Nairn (also designed the TV1 and Ketnet's logos). The name "Canvas" is meant to symbolize an empty canvas "waiting to be filled with colour and movement".
In 2008, Canvas+ is launched.
The idents featured a mirror in the shape of the logo filmed around Flanders.
New idents were made by Red Bee Media in 2005.
The new logo was designed by Why Not Associates (also designed the new Eén logo). The logo font is called Gotham.
In the autumn of 2020, Canvas received a branding refresh which resulted in a redesigned logo, a slimmed-down version of the 2015 logo. This time, the two rectangles are 20% less thicker than the original.
