July 14, 2017 (Koror, Palau) Winners of the Year of Family logo were announced this week.  Two winners were chosen and their arts were merged to create one logo.  These are the Salomon Marino family and Pastrana family.


The contest was conducted by Bureau of Land and Survey under the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Industry and Commerce.

The theme of the contest was “A utem a delad ea daob a demad, bode telungalek el mesebechakl a utem ma daob eng selbechakl a beluu er Belau”.

This year was declared the Year of the Family and this contest was based on family entries, each family entering one logo that they worked on as family.

The logo will be used as an official seal through out this year and will be placed on all communications. [/restrict]
