RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, FEB. 9, 2012 (Zenit.org).- The colors of the Brazilian flag and the famous Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro form part of the official logo for World Youth Day 2013, designed by Gustavo Huguenin, 25.
The designer prayed about the theme of the event, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19) before submitting his winning drawing, the official WYD Web site reported.
“In this passage we see that Jesus met His disciples on a mountain. So, from the beginning, the image of Christ the Redeemer wouldn’t leave me — Jesus, who is on a mountain. Besides being the universal symbol of Rio de Janeiro, it has everything to do with the theme. In the process of creation I first put the concept which must be transmitted. It should have the figure of Jesus, the figure of the disciple and maybe some reference to nations. These three words would be essential if they could be transmitted graphically. Christ the Redeemer represents Christ, the disciple is represented by the heart, for the disciple is one who carries Jesus in his heart, and the nations are represented by the forms that recall Rio de Janeiro, the city which at that moment will be the heart of the world for the youth and which will welcome them, in reference to the mountain and the sea,” Huguenin explained.
The logo is heart-shaped with a depiction of the Christ the Redeemer statue in yellow in the middle. The upper half of the heart is green, with a small white cross on the left, and the bottom half is blue.
WYD 2013 will be held in Rio from July 23 to 28, 2013.
