Muscat – The Ministry of Social Development launched a new logo for Omani Women’s Day on Sunday.
The old logo was in use since the inception of the award ten years ago. ‘The move comes in line with the renewed Renaissance and Oman Vision 2040,’ stated the ministry.
The brand new logo is shaped as a jewel, symbolising the value of women. It also contains the number 17 indicating October 17 (Omani Women’s Day), as well as a woman’s face. The colours are inspired by the Omani traditional costumes.
In a statement, H E Dr Laila Ahmed al Najjar, Minister of Social Development, said the launch of the new logo gave a chance for designers who took part in designing the logo to highlight progress witnessed by the renewed Renaissance.
“The renewed Renaissance focuses on developing all forms of work and accords extended care particularly to the Omani woman. It also explores services that copes with forming a new perspective to the role of Omani women, within Oman Vision 2040,” she said.
