The Embassy of India yesterday organised a joint launch ceremony to unveil the logo for the year-long Golden Jubilee celebrations on the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Diplomatic relations were established on 12 October 1971.
Bahrain Ambassador to India Abdulrahman Al Gaoud, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), Bahrain Chief of Afro-Asian Affairs Fatima Abdulla Al Dhaen and Ambassador Piyush Srivastava jointly unveiled the logo and also addressed the gathering.
Present were representatives from Bahrain Arts and Cultural Authority and Foreign Affairs Ministry, as well as Indian community organisations, Indian PSUs in Bahrain, Business Community Media fraternity and prominent Bahraini and Indian dignitaries.
The Embassy of India, in association with MoFA, Bahrain, held a logo design contest in June, which was open for Indian and Bahraini nationals.
It attracted more than 200 entries. The logo designed by Ajo Antony, an Indian national resident in Bahrain, was selected after an elaborate process.
Antony was felicitated by Ambassador Srivastava on the occasion. The Embassy, in partnership with concerned agencies of the Bahrain government and Indian community organisations, will be hosting a series of events in 2021-22 to mark the milestone Golden Jubilee celebrations.
