Posted on: November 14, 2022 | Back | Print

India’s Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi unveiled the Logo, Theme and Website of India’s G20 Presidency on 08 November 2022. The logo and theme, unveiled by the Prime Minister in virtual mode, are as below:

The logo and the theme together convey a powerful message of India’s G20 Presidency, which is of striving for just and equitable growth for all in the world in these turbulent times. The G20 Logo draws inspiration from the vibrant colours of India’s national flag – saffron, white and green, and blue. It juxtaposes planet Earth with the lotus, India’s national flower that reflects growth amid challenges. The Earth reflects India’s pro-planet approach to life, one in perfect harmony with nature. Below the G20 logo is "Bharat”, meaning India, written in the Devanagari script.

The logo draws upon elements contained in various entries received amongst over 2000 submissions during an open competition for the logo design organized on MyGov portal. This is in line with Prime Minister's vision of Jan Bhagidari during India’s G20 Presidency.

The theme of India’s G20 Presidency - "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or "One Earth One Family One Future” - is drawn from the ancient Sanskrit text of the Maha Upanishad, to essentially affirm the value of all life and interconnectedness. The theme also spotlights LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment), with its associated, environmentally sustainable and responsible choices. It represents a uniquely Indian approach to the G20 Presidency, of living in harmony with the surrounding ecosystem.

For India, the G20 Presidency also marks the beginning of "Amritkaal”, the 25-year period beginning from the 75th anniversary of its independence on 15 August 2022, leading up to the centenary of its independence, towards a futuristic, prosperous, inclusive and developed society, distinguished by a human-centric approach at its core.

The website of India’s G20 Presidency is bound to migrate to the G20 Presidency website www.g20.org on 1 December 2022, the day India takes over the G20 Presidency. In addition to substantive information about G20 and logistics arrangements, the website would also be used to build and serve as a repository of information on G20. The website includes a section for citizens to submit their suggestions. Moreover, a mobile app "G20 India" has been released on both Android and iOS platforms.
