This logo captures the unity of the Dominican family. The two figures in black symbolizes the youth, with joy and a welcoming gesture. This means as Dominican Youth we welcome each other and await to build new relations with the Dominican Youth from all over the world. These two figures hold up a stand, and on this stand is the logo of the International Dominican Youth Movement (IDYM).
The burning torch carried by the dog symbolizes St. Dominic who is a burning torch in Church through the Dominican Family. The figures hold this stand as
a sign of the youth mission to spread the light into the world
where there is confusion clarity; where there is lie, truth; and where there is despair, hope.
At the center is the Dominican Shield, which is surrounded by three figures of different colors. The figures with different colors represent diversity, the youth come from diverse backgrounds and countries. These figures form a circle which indicate that globe, since Dominican youth come from different parts of the world. The use of the three colors of the three figures represent the following: Green represents creation (humanity) and renewal, we gather for the Assembly as people from different backgrounds and joined as one for the renewal of our mission as Dominican youth. Red symbolizes that we are one in heart and our determination; as Dominican Youth we gather with one mission of preaching and are determined to bring a positive change in the world. Yellow stands for joy, as Dominican youth we bring joy to the Assembly, as it is often said that there is nothing as beautiful as a Dominican who is joyful.
This logo is a collaborative design by the MONTEBELLO DOMINICAN YOUTH MOVEMENT in South Africa. Every idea from group members made it possible for them to come up with this logo amazing logo for our Meeting and Assembly 2020: Njoo Uone (come and see), to be held in Nairobi, Kenya, on July 15-20, 2020.
