Our Visual Identity
Our visual identity captures the meaning and focus of our work. Graphically, it represents two intersecting (=) symbols that form a shelter under which the basic human rights of every Saskatchewan citizen are protected.
Its colours represent the three levels of human rights legislation and jurisdiction that provide this protection. The colours Green and Gold represent the Province of Saskatchewan and its Bill of Rights. Red represents Canada and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. And, Blue represents the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Together, these pieces of legislation define and protect the rights of every Saskatchewan citizen and inform our work everyday.
