Noted by Painter Le Huy Tiep, Head of the Graphics Art Council of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association, the winner 45th anniversary Logo represents a harmonious fusion of a golden star as the symbol of Vietnam’s national flag and the Canada-characterized maple leaf. The nine-color spectrum in the logo not only exerts an eye-soothing effect but also symbolizes Canada’s pride of being a multiracial, multiculture country. The logo was presented internationally by VCFA in the Vietnam Day in Ottawa, Canada in September.

The VCFA Logo depicts an amalgam of the symbolic lotus flower of Vietnam and the maple leaf of Canada. The delicate, well-balanced, firm layout makes it usable for publications, Tiep said./.
