Japan Announced the Winners of Logo Design and Catchphrase Competition for the 50th Year of Friendship and Cooperation
The announcement everyone has been waiting for is here! Congratulations to the winners of the Logo Design and Catchphrase Competition for the 50th Year ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation.
The philosophy behind the logo:
The red circle represents the Japanese flag; wrapped in a mobius ring of ribbons where each bound stalks of rice represents each ASEAN Member States. Southeast Asian countries are connected by the ocean; this is incorporated by the blue waves into the logo.
This logo and catchphrase will be used officially to commemorate the golden anniversary of ASEAN-Japan relations taking place next year, 2023.
