The logo depicted here contains a number of overlapping images or thoughts that reflect upon cultural diversity.
The 5 theoretical continents of the world are depicted in 5 elements of different colours (not unlike the icon of the Olympic movement). These are also playful depicting festival like colours.
The elements themselves represent several images;
smiles
birds in flight
arms raised to the sky in joy
banners in the wind
The design confirms that although we are all different colours we are of the same type. We should revel in the range of our diverse cultural expression but acknowledge our fundamental humanity.
The monochrome version depicts the 3 dimensional quality of the design. The animation identifies the individual elements which could include a 3 dimensional aspect to the movement.
