    That’s not what they used for the lettering on the British embassy in Berlin. This style looks more like a Futura derivative:

    By the way, the United States present themselves in faux small caps from a generic grotesque:

    I stumbled on these Dax logos in a search for something else. They seem fairly new and not universally used. Perhaps it’s a rebrand in transition.

    What a high standard that has been set by the world’s embassies!

    “Europe”? Is that a typo or joke I don’t get?

    In France, Deberny & Peignot possessed the rights to distribute Futura. They renamed it to Europe — according to Fernand Baudin, in order to mask its German origins.

    I am particularly disappointed by the Dutch embassy’s use of Arial, although the American embassy’s faux small caps come rather close.
