Story of the Logo

Our logo represents five elements that can be commonly seen in UAE: The Arabian Oryx, The Palm Tree, The coastline of Arabian Ocean, The Desert and The Sky.

  • The orange represents the majestic golden sand dunes and the golden opportunity that the land creates for those who consider it their home.
  • The blue represents the mystical ocean and the hope it carries for connecting us to the 70% of the world which is water.
  • The white represents the ethereal sky, which represents the ambitions and aspirations of UAE to be the best country in the world.
  • The petal shapes represent the Palm branch, which represents UAE’s peace and love for tolerance.

The Arabian Oryx is one of the natural conservation priorities in the region because of its heritage and biological value. Before the union, the Arabian Oryx numbers have begun to decrease and threatened with extinction due to human and urban development. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan had a special interest and care towards the environment and had established many protected areas and issued environmental laws and regulations to ensure the sustainability of this natural wealth، May Allah rest his soul in peace. Based on the successful story of reviving the Arabian Oryx on the region, it is chosen as the logo to represent The International Biology Olympiad that will be hosted by United Arab Emirates in 2023. We are looking forward to send a message to all participants and the world about the importance of conservation of wildlife and protection of natural resources.
