Turkey’s G20 Presidency logo combines diverse patterns, some traditional, some modern. Each representing a component of the unique cultural heritage of Turkey. These symbolize harmony, innovation, togetherness, growth and synergy. They are all in harmony with the working principles and the founding spirit of the G20. After all, the important dimension of the G20 is to bring together advanced and emerging economies representing different parts of the world and having diverse cultural backgrounds around the same table.
The second element in the Turkish Presidency logo is the tulip. In classical Turkish culture, the tulip symbolizes beauty, elegance and perfection. Since the Ottoman period, the tulip has been one of the main symbols of Istanbul and it was widely used in classic Turkish arts. For us the tulip is more than a flower. It is a way of expressing perfection in our classical art and poetry.
