The isologotype is presented in the Ministry's Manual of Corporate Identity, elaborated by Edward Antonio (Communication Department of the Ministry), as the union of the isologo (symbol) and the logotype (writing), which should not be used separately.
The isologo is a representation of the united youth, forming a closed circle. The different colours symbolize the different nations, religions, cultures, thoughts, etc.
The logotype, placed beneath the symbol, is made of the initials "MJ" and the Ministry's full name, in black letters of the Baker Signet BT font. The typography used in the logotype is "young, dynamic, and emblematic." Ivan Sache, 3 January 2015
