About the Logo



This logo is inspired by Mizuhiki, a traditional Japanese art form made from colored rice paper cords. The five strings, representing the five rings of the Olympics, together form a cherry blossom, a symbol of encounters, farewells, and firm bonds in Japan. We strive to make IBO 2020 a platform where future world-leading biologists can gather, nurture deep friendships, and inspire each other to better the world.
