The logo for the Cook Islands’ 50th Anniversary of self-government in free association with New Zealand has recently been launched. It symbolizes the founding of the Cook Islands and its subsequent growth.
Layout artist, Katarina Katoa, says that her winning logo symbolizes the ‘pito’, the umbilical cord. This signifies birth and relates to the founding of this nation from its infancy and its growth.
Additionally, she states, “It also represents the connection of our people to our God, land, the sea and to each other.”
There is a a Cook Islands 50th Anniversary Facebook page that will keep you informed about the events that will be happening throughout the year.
Also, a Website has been established for the 50th Anniversary.
Take an adventure and visit the Cook Islands this year!
