Logo Image Specification #

All logo images served follow the following specs:

  • PNG format
  • Square 300 x 300 pixels

Placeholder images #

Not all stock tickers have a proper logo, for which we provide simple placeholder images. See sample below.


By default Logo API will always serve a placeholder image for those that don’t exist. If you would rather have the endpoint return a 404 when the resource does not exist you can use the placeholder query parameter.

curl --location --request GET 'https://data.alpaca.markets/v1beta1/logos/ABCD?placeholder=false'

Sandbox environment #

You can test the logos API in the sandbox environment.


However, in this environment only the following logos are available:

  • AAPL
  • AMZN
  • F
  • GE

For any other symbol, you will get a placeholder only.
