Identity of World Living Heritage Festival Logo

The right-handed Conch Shell and the multi-coloured Lotus were selected because they connect holistically with the spirit of intangible Living Heritage of the world. The sound waves of the conch shell are the primordial sounds of creation and auspicious beginnings which are preserved in the multi-coloured Lotus leaves representing multiple cultures encompassing and preserving our Living Heritage. One of the most ancient plants in existence, the Lotus is extremely resilient and considered the embryonic cradle of the universe from which unfold new worlds and new life. The Conch Shell and the Lotus symbolize brilliance, purity and usher in new hope which survives everything.
