Availability: Seen on Panchami, Randu Lokam, Rathinirvedam and Pavizhamutthu.

2nd Logo (August 23, 1980)

Visuals: The first element shown is a candle in a dark setting. The lower part then dissappears, only leaving the flame visible. It crossfades to a different figure of Virgin Mary with an even number of candles on both sides in a dark room. The candles soon light up together afterwards, which is then followed by "SUPRIYA" fading in above the figure.

3rd Logo (May 1, 1986)

Visuals: On a black background with a bright star on the top-left corner is once again a different figure of the virgin mary with 2 sets of candles on both sides. A light from above illuminates the statue, revealing that the figure is on a black pedestal, which contains the word "SUPRIYA".

Technique: Live-action.

Audio: An organ tune with bell rings.

Availability: Seen on Arappatta Kettiya Gramathil.

4th Logo (February 2, 1990)

Visuals: Almost the same as the first logo, but with some key differences: There are seven candles that are a bit closer to the figure, and the figure is undecorated and is seen over a pile of flower petals. Superimposed into the shot is "SUPRIYA".

Technique: Live-action.

Audio: A somber three-note organ tune.

Availability: Seen on Malootty.

5th Logo (July 30, 1993)

Visuals: On an ocean setting set at night with a ray of light at the top left, a superimposed shot of a different, more detailed Virgin Mary statue with two small candles on the bottom of the footage, fades in while the light ray fades away. Then "Supriya International" in a white Avant Garde font fades in underneath.

Technique: Live-action, 2D animation for the text.

Audio: A dramatic synth note throughout the logo with bell rings when the figure appears. After a rising note, a descending eight-note tanpura that repeats twice then starts playing when the text appears.

Availability: Seen on Athma.
