400,000 colors vs. 4 colors

10:21 AM


To this day, I still find it hard to believe that out of all the wonderful designers, artists, photographers, and talent we have, we chose one who designed the SIX doves (which represent 400,000 peace doves) with millions of colors on top (these colors were referred to as the colors of love). What did the purple have to do with anything? Or the yellow? What about the clash of horrible colors in the middle? I'm still infuriated to be honest. 

And now this comparison comes along where it's shows the difference between Oman's 40 years logo and UAE's 40 years logo. I'll be honest and say it, theirs is absolutely beautiful and makes you relate to it immediately whether you are a foreigner or a local. A pity that we never tend to learn from this. We'd have to wait for the 45th year celebrations to see what ideas come to the surface. 

Until then, May God Be With Us..!!
