The classification of logos is a particular case within computer vision since they have their own characteristics. Logos can contain only text, iconic images or a combination of both, and they usually include figurative symbols designed by experts that vary substantially besides they may share the same semantics. This work presents a method for multi-label classification and retrieval of logo images. For this, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) are trained to classify logos from the European Union TradeMark (EUTM) dataset according to their colors, shapes, sectors and figurative designs. An auto-encoder is also trained to learn representations of the input images. Once trained, the neural codes from the last convolutional layers in the CNN and the central layer of the auto-encoder can be used to perform similarity search through kNN, allowing us to obtain the most similar logos based on their color, shape, sector, figurative elements, overall features, or a weighted combination of them provided by the user. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first multi-label classification method for logos, and the only one that allows retrieving a ranking of images with these criteria provided by the user.
