In 1973, Subway introduced a new logo with the "SUB" appearing in white and the "WAY" appearing in yellow. Inside the wordmark is an oval. After the next logo was introduced, most older locations kept using this logo until the late 2000s. It can still be found on some Duke ovens at some locations.

In March 2002 when Subway started using a modified version of its 1973 logo without the oval, the typeface changed and the wordmark became italicized. The slogan used with this logo was "Eat Fresh.", which was also used in 2001 with the previous logo. This logo is still used on signs and posters at most of its locations, as they are gradually being updated to the current one.

On December 28, 2015, Subway introduced a new green-colored version of its 2002 logo, as well as a new slogan "Founded on Fresh," which was later changed to "Fresh is what we do." This logo lasted for 8 months before the logo's change in 2016.

On August 5, 2016, Subway unveiled its new design. It is the first time that the sandwich chain has significantly changed the major element of its identity since 2002.

The "SUB" appears in yellow and the "WAY" appears in green, which has a striking resemblance to the 1973 logo, but straightened. Like the previous logos, this logo sometimes appears in yellow and white, but this time the logo's colors are reversed so that the "SUB" still appears in yellow and the "WAY" appears to be in white, instead of "SUB" appearing in white and "WAY" in yellow from the previous logos.

The sandwich chain also made their new symbol, which consists of the two arrows making a small white "S" in the middle. The wordmark and symbol would later be branched into other countries the next year.
