About the logo

Concept

Connection and Creation for multi-cultures understanding

Intention

The Connection of circles expresses the connection of persons and communities that have various cultures and languages.

The top circle expresses arising of new values or various ideas from the connections below, and that a person or a community is being connected to other communities. And the connection of these circles symbolizes the first letter “G” of “Global”.

The bright green color of the logo symbolizes “activness” and “brightness” of the area that promotes connection and creation.

We have made this logo with intention that Global Commons become an active and bright area that produces connection and creation for multi-cultures and multi-languages understanding.
