Because the logo is the graphic representation of a company’s or association’s identity, UAWS wanted to give itself a new identification card during its changes. This new face should without any doubt enable the association to position itself at the continental and even international level.
So a contest for the most beautiful logo was launched on by the Association. Out of the 45 candidates who started the contest, five were short-listed by the selection commission of the new Association logo.
Two characteristics dominated in the logos chosen - the map of Africa and the drop of water - elements that show the origin of the Union and its major concern.
“The main idea of the logo came to me from the image of a little child with a stretched hand to collect rain-water falling in drops from a roof. This image inspired me a lot for it showed how complex it is to handle water,” said Mr. BENGALI DABA, the winner of the competition and teacher-researche at the University of Ouagadougou.
