United and Continental Airlines on Wednesday revealed changes to the logo and appearance of the proposed merged airline.

The logo will have United in all caps along with the global mark which Continental's used for nearly two decades.

On the aircraft, the Continental logo will be on the tail, and the new-style United will appear on the fuselage.

The new look is a slight departure from what the two airlines unveiled shortly after they reached an agreement to merge. Here's that look.

When the merger is complete, the new airline will become the world's largest.
