As designers, we understood the principles behind creating simple and complex logos and when we see or create one, we draw inspirations by reading, writing or creating stories about it first, before the design makes meaning to us.

There is a story (symbolism and description) behind every logo.

This logo depicts Nigeria's togetherness; a country of over 200 million people, whose natural talents, grits, and passion glitter like the precious diamond she is.

The neatly encrusted diamond on her map symbolises her age of treasure, the worth of her people, who are sparkle to the admiration of the world.

The fair green and the dark green colours should respectively remind her citizens of her warmth, welcoming spirit, and love, as well as the abundant wealth inherent in the human capital and the richness of her land.

All these properties made her, unarguably, the most prosperous black nation in the world and Africa’s largest economy.

TOGETHER SHALL WE BE will be the theme of her 60th-anniversary celebration.
