2nd ID (November 1965?-1991)

Visuals: On a blue background, there is a tri-colored satellite-looking symbol with the name's initials at the center of the satellite. Around the symbol is the Georgian and Russian translation of the television name (which both translate to Color Television of Georgia) forming a ring that has an opening at the end. The Georgian translation (საქართველოს ფერადი ტელევიზია) is at top of the symbol, which is curving around it, and at the bottom is the Russian translation (Цветное телевидение Грузии), which forms an opening of the ring. The logo then fades to black.

Technique: A still, printed image

Technique: A still photo with text added via computer.

Audio: A xylophone jingle that echoes and repeats twice.
