About the Logo
 

The Year of Atlantic World Logo is meant to be evocative of the sails of a ship. The sails are all triangles to represent the importance of the triangular slave trade in the construction of an Atlantic World. Finally, the cloth swatches filling the sails come from the many different cultures around the Atlantic and are meant to communicate the idea of complexity in weaving together the many peoples, cultures, and narratives of the region.
