THE OFFICIAL LOGO FOR THE 2016 WMAG IS AGREED ON

 

Today the committee agreed the latest design from our South African hosts official logo. It represents Africa and the origins of human kind as they are found in South Africa and on the logo displayed by showing the cave drawing. Also this is a tribute to the nearly extinct Rhino. We think this is a fantastic idea and support this very human and social logo.
