Triskelion

The department uses a triskelion as the center portion of our official seal/logo. Triskelion is an ancient Greek term meaning three-legged. Our use dates back to the official formation of the department on August 8, 1967. It symbolizes the department’s interest in land, air and water facilities that are vital to Wisconsin’s economic and social progress. The triskelion concept is also used by the US Department of Transportation (US DOT began using it in April 1967).

The mill mark feature on the WisDOT logo is used for smaller renditions where wording might be illegible within the logo itself. More details on the use of the logo.
