Meaning and History

SCP Symbol

The paranormal research team creates a sense of the reality of what is happening. To do this, she uses a strictly regulated style of documentary articles describing the “studied” objects, of which there are a great many. They are recorded and numbered. For example, SCP 087 refers to an endless staircase leading down into uncharted space. In the dark, an entity of SCP 087-1 appears on it with a frightening face without lips, nostrils, or pupils.

There is also a sculpture of SCP 173, from which you cannot look away or blink, as it remains motionless, but when blinking, it approaches and strangles the viewer. SCP ID 294 is a mysterious IKEA supermarket with a huge space that goes nowhere and humanoid beings in-store uniforms that attack in the dark but harmless in the light.

What is SCP?

SCP is a secret community, website, and open-source horror computer game. All events are associated with threats posed by otherworldly forces intending to harm humanity. The name stands for “Secure. Contain. Protect “.

Users still suggest many other creepy images since the basic part of the project is textual content submitted in the form of internal documentation describing anomalies. But there are also full-fledged fiction stories. All this gave rise to laudatory reviews because the academic presentation style perfectly conveys a state of horror. There is a huge amount of work inspired by the SCP Foundation. Among them is the video game Containment Breach.

Moreover, the secret service is constantly working to maintain normal life on the planet and so that the civilian population does not know anything about the constant confrontation. The task of the members of the organization is to prevent terrible incidents and enable people to lead a normal existence: without doubts, fears, and mistrust. In addition, the secret society supports the independence of humanity from extra-dimensional and extraterrestrial phenomena, creatures, anomalies. This concept is directly reflected in the personal SCP mark.

Classic fears and horrors, supplemented by dry articles and statistics, really exude a sense of real events. These facts are also reflected in the logo. Moreover, he got into a scandal when Andrey Duksin, who had been promoting the project for some time, decided to get a patent for it to appropriate and monetize it. However, he was refused. It is now an independent circle-shaped symbol that resembles a drawing part.

The logo has a print shape with three rectangular projections at the edges, which is very symbolic. Three arrows are directed from them to the center. These are the designations of three missions:

  1. Secure, which embodies the continuous work to identify otherworldly entities.
  2. Contain hides anomalous manifestations and suppresses the spread of information about them to prevent an impact on humanity.
  3. Protect, which protects people from the negative effects of dangerous objects.

They also make up the abbreviation “SCP.”

In the middle is a white space with arrowheads. A wide black stripe surrounds them. Each country has its color adaptation since there is no officially approved version. But the basic elements remain the same.
