We study the signature of classical scale invariance in the far-from-equilibrium quantum dynamics of two-dimensional Bose gases. We show that the density profile displays a scale invariant logarithmic singularity near the center. In addition, the density oscillates due to quantum beats with universal structures. Namely, the frequencies of the beats can be connected with one another by a universal discrete scale transformation induced by the classical scale invariance. The experimental applicability of these results is then discussed.
