Trivia: This and the next logo are based on the Peace Arch that sits on the United States and Canadian borders.

Technique: The zoom-out, the blue spark.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

2nd Logo (2000-2013)

Logo: On a black background, we see a red spark move across from the right side of the screen in an arch. At the same time, a light illuminates, revealing a rotating arch, and the words "PEACE ARCH" below it. Before the arch finishes rotating into position, the red spark comes back around and draws a red arch that connects the first and second "A" together.

Variant: A full screen version exists.

Technique: The red spark, rotating of the arch.

Music/Sounds: None or the closing theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on films like American Soldiers, The Good Shepherd, and Chapter 27, among others. Also seen on the North American release of JCVD and the infamous The Prodigy. This logo was used as a de-facto home video logo.
