The Tolerance Logo is a symbol that reflects the values of the WCPP and conveys the sentiments supported in respect of anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-gender-based violence, anti-discrimination, pro-respect, pro-equality and equity, pro-ethics and integrity, and pro-diversity.
The logo is based on a monkey’s fist knot, a seemingly complex knot consisting of several interwoven and bound strands of rope.
The intertwining colours of the strands of rope in this logo represent the unity and diversity of our society. In combination, these colours support the commitment to promoting tolerance, equality, respect, equity, integrity and diversity.
- The blue strand represents unity. It represents peace and tranquility, which are necessary elements of unity. It symbolises serenity, stability, inspiration, wisdom and reliability.
- Turquoise represents wisdom, tranquility, protection and hope. Ancient peoples believed in its profound power to protect
- Green represents balance and rebirth. It is the symbol of prosperity, freshness and progress and the colour is often used to represent the protection of the vulnerable.
- Purple represents creativity, wisdom, dignity, devotion and peace. Purple is used for the promotion of tolerance.
- Pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding. Pink is strongly associated with causes that promote LGBTQI+ and women's causes and rights.
- Orange represents change, determination, balance, freedom and expression. The colour orange is used widely to create awareness for energy, vitality and general good health.
The symbol of the knot illustrates how these values and strands are intertwined to support each other to form a strong and tight bond and ultimately make up a single symbol of tolerance.
