A small version of the flower from Daisy's Emblem appears next to the logo, but instead has brown petals and a deep orange fill, with a golden orange outline around the center. On the Daisy Cruiser from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii, the logo is accompanied by an image of Daisy on a deep orange background with golden orange and brown outlines. This is surrounded by white petals on an orange background, a white and then brown outline. One variant includes this picture on the left of the text, another on both sides, while another one adds an orange background and adds the text over the image.

The signs return in Mario Kart Wii, but have now been updated to retain the blue and add an outline on the background. The icon of Daisy was completely redesigned in Mario Kart 7, now using new artwork of her from the game within her updated Emblem, but in the same arrangement, though the text remained entirely the same.
