The Royal Thai Embassy wishes to congratulate Mr. Yudi Priyatno, a 21 year-old student from Indonesia, the winner of the competition of the logo design to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between Thailand and Indonesia. The logo competition was organized to raise awareness among general public about the Thai – Indonesian relations. It attracted 637 applicants from all over Thailand and Indonesia.
The winner’s design consists of the shapes of an elephant, symbol of Thailand, and the Garuda, symbol of Indonesia, harmoniously forming the number 70 representing the 70th anniversary. Other features include the shape of a running man representing passion for innovation and creativity, the circle representing integration, cooperation and determination to keep moving forward together, and the wave representing confidence to face the future. The design is in blue and red tone after the flag colours of Thailand and Indonesia. Blue symbolizes professionalism, peace and stability, while red symbolizes dynamism, courage and reliability.
A series of activities have been planned to commemorate the 70th anniversary under the theme “Creativity and Innovation” throughout 2020, including a batik workshop, a seminar on creative economy, film festival, cultural performances, and a business forum. The winning logo will be featured at all activities both in Thailand and in Indonesia.
