President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo Tuesday (05/30) at the State Palace, Jakarta officially unveiled the newly designed logo of Indonesia’s new capital of Nusantara (IKN).

The logo shows the Tree of Life symbol.

According to the President, the symbol represents a visual identity for IKN that has several meanings.

“We hope that the Tree of Life symbol will inspire IKN to become a new home for all of us and to be a source of life for all Indonesian people in the future,” the President said.

The President added that the logo also symbolizes philosophical values that are aligned with the spirit of IKN development, including fostering a sense of pride in the nation’s identity as a large and diverse country.

Through the new IKN logo, he added, public awareness is expected to raise in protecting nature and the environment and its ecosystem.

“The logo may also define our efforts to contribute to accelerating IKN development, the future capital of Indonesia,” he said, adding that the logo, which is designed by Aulia Akbar, was chosen after garnering the most votes from more than 500 thousand voters.

“As Head of the IKN Authority said earlier, the logo with the most voters has been chosen after going through a very selective competition process, alhamdulillah. Thus, keep in mind that it is not the President’s decision. It is the people who vote,” he remarked. (FID/UN) (RIF/EP)
