HRC unveils new logo in recognition of International Human Rights Day 2020

Category: Press Release

The Human Rights Commission (HRC) introduces today a new brand identity to better align itself with the universal logo for human rights.  The new logo features a stylized bird in flight, with an outstretched wing which symbolizes a hand, all underpinned by a bold equals sign representing equality for all. The vibrant green is symbolic of land and the blue representational of the sea to illustrate the Cayman Islands.


The universal logo for human rights was selected following an international initiative “A Logo for Human Rights” which started in 2011, the initiative had the goal of creating an internationally recognised symbol to support the global human rights movement and draw attention to human rights violations.  The competition received over 15,000 submissions from over 190 countries with the final logo unveiled on 23 September 2011 designed by Predrag Stakic of Serbia which combines the shape of a hand with that of a bird.
