“The Kyoto Prize has been given in three domains since 1984:

Kyocera Logo

“The Kyocera brand symbol is composed of a corporate mark
and our corporate logotype. The mark represents the initial
‘K’ (for Kyocera) encircling a ‘C’ (for ceramics). It was
introduced in October 1982 when the company name was
changed from ‘Kyoto Ceramic’ to ‘Kyocera.'”
