Logo Meaning:


The Asia Pacific Emergency and Disaster Nursing Network (APEDNN) Logo has been designed to encompass the following:

Emergency and disasters are symbolised through the color blue which represents the color of the earth, while the upper part of the logo symbolizes the wave of a Tsunami. The half concentric circles are similar to the global warning symbol for earthquakes.

The overall look of the logo is similar to a shell symbolising shelter and safety. For the APEDNN this includes the sharing of knowledge, skills and support in all emergency and disaster phases for communities prone to emergency and disaster events.

The logo also represents a hand making a fist. The upper part of the Tsunami wave represents 4 fingers and the lower part the thumb symbolising a hand in hand approach by nurses to make a determined contribution to emergency and disaster related matters.
