Here you can learn everything about the EXPO 2020 Dubai logo and its meaning.
An antique ring as a template for the logo
Its ornamental appearance is intended to recall the ancient past of the region.
The shape and colors of the logo are based on a ring discovered in 2002 during archaeological excavations at a 4,000-year-old archaeological site in the desert.
The ring represents the status of the United Arab Emirates as a young nation with strong ties to early cultures and nowadays to other parts of the world, he said.
And thus the ring and logo also establish a connection with the EXPO motto.
"The design of the logo is inspired by a civilization that existed 4,000 years ago in an area stretching from Baynounah in Abu Dhabi to Saroug Al Hadeed in Dubai, and from the Maliha Valley in Sharjah to the mountains of Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah," Sheikh Mohammed commented.
