At the close of the submission phase of the global online competition “A Logo for Human Rights” there were over 15,000 logos submitted for consideration. Since the initiative began on May 3, 2011, people from all over the world have participated in the competition, the largest of its kind so far. They have sent in suggestions and rated the ideas of others.

From August 27 to September 17, people can vote for their favourites at www.humanrightslogo.net.
All people worldwide are encouraged to participate by choosing their favourite logo.This puts the original idea of the competition into practice:
the creation of a human rights logo - by the people, for the people.
Th winning logo will be presented on September 23, 2011 in New York alongside the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly. The presentation will be broadcast worldwide via the internet.
Nearly everyone knows that a heart symbolizes love and a dove means peace. But what is the symbol for human rights? The answer is that there is non .There are 6.8 billion people living on this planet. All of them have human rights – and yet we still have no way of overcoming language
barriers to communicate this universal bond symbolically.
We want to fill this gap and make a peaceful contribution to strengthening human rights with the “Logo for Human Rights ”initiative.
Who supports the initiative? A jury of renowned and high-ranking personalities including the likes of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanethem Pillay (South Africa), and five Nobel Peace Prize winners – Aung San Suu Kyi (Myanmar), Shirin Ebadi (Iran), Muhammad Yunus
