The current logo was introduced on June 28, 2000; its 35th anniversary. The font was changed from Bodoni Antiqua to Bodoni BE, and the letter kerning was widened. This was used concurrently with the 1971 logo.

On June 28, 2005 - its 40th anniversary - the 1971 logo was discontinued from official usage, thereby making the 2000 logo the sole official logo of the paper. This change coincided with the changing of the wordmark's colour from black to blue, along with the introduction of a new newspaper layout.
