Announcing the winning logo on Twitter, the Ruler of Dubai stated ‘Today, my brother Mohammed bin Zayed and 49 Emirati creators launched the new visual media identity for the UAE.

According to the Nation Brand website where the voting was conducted, the logo represents seven lines that rise up tall with momentum, optimism and dynamism as a tribute to the seven bold leaders who helped shaped the Emirates. The lines together form the shape of the map of UAE representing the united front of our future-focused leaders towards the country’s growth.
