Poll : Should Reproductive Health subject be introduced in school?

new logo


Recently, BEDSA had organized a LOGO DESIGNING COMPETITION among BEDSA members. The intention is to get a new-look logo for the new tenure. We received 8 participants, and the exco members have officially selected two that are most suitable to represent BEDSA as a whole to be voted by INSTEDians.

The process took 2 days long, and the winner, with majority of 86 votes, goes out to this logo:

The explanation of the logo are as follow:

If you look at the logo closely, you’ll find yourself looking at a tulip. Tulip, as we all know is the flower that is so unique. It is not too elegant, too romantic, too big, too small, or too bright; the tulip is always just right. It is trying to show that BEDSA as an association that is just right to suit the members in INSTED.

As for the colours:

  1. The blue colour signifies inspiration, sincerity and spirituality. It is the colour of truth and moderation.
  2. Yellow is the colour of creative and intellectual energy. It symbolizes wisdom, joy and happiness. People of high intellect favours yellow.
  3. White is not a colour, but the manifestation of the presence of all colour - the complete energy of light. It stands for wholeness and completion.

Hopefully, with the new logo, and the new line up, BEDSA will always keep on moving forward.

what say you, INSTEDians?
