The UAE’s new logo has been unveiled to the world.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, made it public on Wednesday (7th January).
More than 10 million people worldwide voted to pick their favourite from three that were designed by 49 Emirati artists – seven from each of the emirates.
For each vote that was cast, a tree will be planted in areas of Nepal and Indonesia affected by climate change.
The winning logo – called ‘Seven Lines’ will represent the country for the next 50 years, as the UAE moves towards its Golden Jubilee in 2021.
On the UAE Nation Brand website, it says the design is “shaping the map of the Emirates with the flag colours, represent the future-focused leaders of the seven emirates united towards the country’s growth.”
Tweeting about the logo launch, Sheikh Mohammed said: “Today, my brother Mohammed bin Zayed and 49 Emirati creators launched the new visual media identity for the UAE an identity that represents our map and escalated our ambitions.”
