Dear Scouts around the globe,
We are delighted to share with you the winning design for this year’s JOTA-JOTI. We received many beautiful designs from all around the world and we thank everyone who shared their designs. It was really superb work from everyone.
The winner for this year, selected by jury, is the design submitted by Carlos de Sã from Brazil.
Carlos designed his logo based on our 2017 theme. He explained it as follows: the logo is based on the Scout handshake around the globe (Earth) — representing the connection and friendship among all Scouts in the world. Each handshake is shown as coloured ribbon representing all types of cultures and ethnic groups. The hands on top and underneath sustain the globe as well as the purple left hand seeks someone to be a new friend.
The badge can be ordered from World Scout Shops, and is also available as a pin badge and a blanket badge. Order from World Scout Shops.
