Our Logo: What It Means

In October 2000, Mr Guihua Zhang, formerly an art tutor for our weekend cultural programme completed design of the CNSST logo (posted at the top left of all our webpages). The meaning behind its design is as follows:

The blue strokes suggest supporting hands or growing plants and represent CNSST’s multi-services

The red circle pattern represents Chinese New Zealanders

The blue and red used in the logo represent New Zealand and Chinese cultures respectively

Mr Zhang was a trustee at that time and had voluntarily had been working on the logo for more than a month. He provided three alternative draft designs to the board, who settled on the version we have used until now.
