The logo shows a stylized landscape on a disc, consisting mostly of landforms and vegetation in stylized black shapes set on a background of horizontal stripes of varying width and hues separated by thick black lines, suggesting a sunset (or sunrise) over water; that striped background is horizontally symmetric and the stripes are, from the top to the middle, the first three in shades of blue, from medium dark to light cyan, and then an orange stripe and a yellow one (and then repeating mirrorwise downwards to the bottom); the orange stripes are the thinnest, the yellow ones being about one and a half times ticker, and the four lighter blue ones double that, leaving the darker blue areas, at top and bottom, to fill out the polar parts of the disc. In foreground, obscuring most of the lower dark blue area, a stilized shore or bank, in brown with thick black details; on its edge black stylized evergreens and grass stalks, while dotting the two yellow stripes, three grassy islands (?) are set in perspective.
