- This article discusses Humanism as a non-theistic belief system (the term preferred by Humanists is "life stance"). For other uses of the term "humanism", please see Humanism.
The Happy Human (originally the Happy Man) is the official symbol of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), a world body for Humanism, and has been adopted by many Humanist organisations and individuals worldwide. This symbol was chosen in the 1960s after a competition organised by the British Humanist Association. The winning design was created by Denis Barrington.
The copyright is held by the British Humanist Association, which freely licenses use of the symbol by bona fide Humanist organisations worldwide. A great many Humanist organisations use the symbol or an adapted version of it.
