Logo and Symbolism
My logo includes an African Adinkra symbol illustrating the importance of democracy, unity and diversity by depicting two Siamese crocodiles who share a stomach yet fight over food. This popular symbol is a reminder that infighting and tribalism are harmful to all who engage in it and to the dangers disharmonious behaviors bring to the people.
Adinkra is a writing system incorporating symbols representing various concepts that are used by the Akan peoples of Ghana to mark fabrics, walls, pottery, and other surfaces. The symbols represent popular proverbs and maxims, record historical events, express particular attitudes or beliefs related to depicted figures, or concepts uniquely related to abstract shapes. It is one of several traditional cloths produced in the region. There are more than 200 Adinkra symbols and meanings to each one of them.
