I borrowed quite a chunk of the banner above from the United Nations’ Human Rights Day 2007 website.

On Human Rights Day, 10 Dec 2007, Ban Ki-Moon, United Nations’ Secretary-General, and Louise Arbour, High Commissioner for Human Rights, will launch a year long celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

UDHR 60 Logo

The anniversary campaign is symbolized by the UDHR60 logo, which depicts a human shape standing with arms wide open. The yellow and red symbol represents liberation and equality. The yellow is a sign of peace and warmth. The symbol is set on a solid block which represents the foundation of human rights. The earthy red colour of the block reinforces human rights as a foundation stone and as humankind’s common heritage. (Source)

The UDHR60 logo comes with words that encapsulate the promise of the Declaration: “Dignity and Justice for all of us”. It reinforces the vision of the UDHR as the first international recognition that fundamental rights and freedoms are inalienable and inherent to all human beings, that every one of us is born free and equal. The phrase also serves as a rallying call, for the promise of dignity and justice is far from realized for everyone. The UDHR is a living document that matters not only in times of conflict and in societies suffering repression, but also in addressing social injustice and achieving human dignity in times of peace in established democracies. Non-discrimination, equality and fairness – key components of justice – form the foundation of the UDHR. And no matter where you live, how much money you have, what faith you practice or political views you hold, all the human rights in the Declaration apply to you, everywhere, always. (Source)
