My idea was to represent cultural diversity using a universal symbol constructed with elements that are different from each other.
That's how I understand the essence of human diversity: we are the same (human), yet each one of us is unique. We're all part of a country or culture, but they're different from each other.
There are five colors representing the continents. They also stand for the different activities that will take place during the festival: graphic arts, music, dance, photography & film and dialogue (verbal).
