Architect Ujjwal


“The FOSS4G-Asia 2018 logo is inspired by water lily, the National flower of Sri Lanka and abstract form of the geographic shape of the country.

Lily bud resembles the royalty, purity, and the beauty of the youth which will enlight the FOSS4G. Lily meant for the ambition that the young generation have along with the encouragement that they should be given to face all the difficult challenges coming in their way. The OSGeo / FOSS4G ribbon symbol at the tip of the lily bud manifests the impact to the young generation from FOSS4G-Asia 2018 which will provide them with a lifetime opportunity to show their talent on the opensource in a global platform.

The colour combination of the logo is predominantly inspired from the Sri Lankan flag and it represents the unity among various ethnic groups in Sri Lanka. Blue colour in the band represents the Indian ocean that surrounds Sri Lanka and is associated with open spaces, freedom, imagination, inspiration, expansiveness, and sensitivity”
