Design Concept of Symbol and Logotype
The concepts of the design are of an "eye looking at the world","waves of peace" eternally flowing outwards, and "beating wings" upon which the Okinawa Peace Prize will strive towards a future filled with hopes of peace.
The peace-seeking "heat of Okinawans" is conveyed to the world through the magnificent expression of Okinawan unique history, traditions and culture.
The "KI" of OKINAWA, the "EA" of PEACE and the "RI" of PRIZE are bound toghether. This represents the joining of hands of the world's people to express desire for eternal peace.
