Oman rights panel launches logo

MUSCAT — Oman’s National Human Rights Commission has launched its logo coinciding with World Human Rights Day.

The emblem, a dove spreading its wings as it carries an olive branch in the colours of the Omani flag, was unveiled by Legal Affairs Minister Mohammed bin Nasser Al Alawi at a ceremony here. It also features the inscription ‘Insan’, or human, extracted from the title of the commission.

The bird, a spokesman explained, symbolised freedom, peace, justice and security.

“It expresses the fact that people living in the country enjoy security, safety, justice and equality in rights and obligations… The blue colour represents water and the sky, again representing security and freedom.”

Speaking on the occasion, Mohammed bin Abdullah al Riyami, Chairman of the commission, said the rights of the individual had been secured in Oman since the beginning of its modern renaissance.
