Our Logo

It can be looked as an “arrow downwards”, attempting to push down or shrink. It can also be looked as outreached hands of people, pointing upwards, demanding more freedom, attempting to attain their unlimited potentials.

The color is blue – the color of the ocean and the sky, which themselves represent unlimited horizon.
