Local Inventory Ads - Logo Question

[ Edited ]

The steps for account approval require that 2 vector images be sent. The email states that the one of the images should fit within a 1:1 square, and the other within a 2:1 rectangle.


My question here is, since a vector file is infinitely scalable, why does google require two images? Can't white-space just be added to make up the additional ratio space?

normally, there should be only one image needed for the logo.

the square aspect-ratio and svg/ai/eps requirements' stated
intent is mainly to allow for legible cropping and resizing.

if a local-inventory support-specialist is requiring multiple images
for a logo with respect to a specific approval, then the best likely
course is to simply reply directly to that support specialist.

otherwise, google tends not to publicly discuss any details
related to why an account-specific request has been made.
