The Official Wizarding World logo depicts several wands:

The middle wand seems to be the Elder Wand. Is it possible to identify the other wands (as in who are their owners)?

Wizarding World themselves have answered this in the announcement of the new logo.

The new Wizarding World logo is an open book, reflecting its literary origins, and contains elements emblematic of the beloved characters from both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts. Astute fans will instantly notice the iconic lightning bolt, as well as a subtle nod to magical creatures, embedded in the logo. Additionally, the book’s fanned-open ‘pages’ are actually wands, each belonging to one of the legendary wizards or witches from the two franchises.

The order of the wands is also symbolic: reflecting the evolution of the films, they begin with those chosen for the Harry Potter characters, followed by key characters from Fantastic Beasts. From left to right, they are the wands belonging to Voldemort, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore (the Elder Wand), Newt Scamander, Tina Goldstein, Queenie Goldstein, and Gellert Grindelwald (the wand he possessed before claiming the Elder Wand).

All of the wands point inward, inviting both devoted and new fans, as well as future generations, to discover more of the magic and adventure of the Wizarding World.

Note that the bottom horizontal lines that make up the cover of the book and join at the spine aren’t wands but just that, lines to show the cover.

Not to take the fun out of it completely, here's a comparison of all the wands:

    so I guess the "Wizarding World" is inimitably tied to the WB films, not merely the Rowling Potterverse textually. As servicably decent as the films they are, I would hope that someday we'd get a more robust Netflix type series that does the text full justice

    @NKCampbell: I'm rather doubtful of that. The films made an insane amount of money, regardless of how fans may feel about them, and it would be difficult to compete with them after the fact. But I could imagine them doing something safer, like Law & Order: Magical Britain (but with a snappier title, such as Aurors).

    I suppose it is too much to hope that JKR would actually write novels rather than just fob off screenplays.
