It is about us, ‘We Bajans’!

The We Gatherin' Logo

THE CONCEPT

The icon symbolises the journey to and across Barbados for We Gatherin’ 2020. The trident inspired arrows reach across the landscape of our Island representing the movement of Barbadians and guests from all over the world on our Island. The curved shape of the tines or prongs of the trident /arrows hugs the map of Barbados demonstrating warmth, care and consideration

The blue, gold and black are a tribute to our National Colours, whilst inspiring our allegiance to country, they are also promote a unified and shared vision for the future and well-being of Barbados.

The We Gatherin’ logo was designed by Donna Redman, Director of Special Projects at Acute Vision Inc.

Donna has worked on many projects of national significance including the design of the winning logo for The SIDS Conference in 1994; the concept for the journey across Barbados ‘Carrying the Pride’ and the design and production of the Commemorative Broken Trident; and, design of the Barbados National Leadership Medal.
