Enthused by the country’s National symbols, the artwork shows a white pelican in flight with an extended left wing with its feathers embossed in red, green, and yellow colors, each depicting the parishes of the twin island state. The right wing in yellow and black is illuminated by two (2) stars, which represent the islands and complements the icon that sits on top of the Commonwealth Games Federation’s (CGF) emblem.
Mr. Byron, who was commissioned by the Local Organizing Committee to produce the insignia, stated that it proudly represents St. Kitts and Nevis in “one sketch that captured the true spirit of unity”.
In the past, Byron’s work has been featured by a number business houses, including St. Kitts-Nevis- Anguilla National Bank, St. Kitts-Nevis Finance Company (FINCO), and Island Expressions, to name a few.
The Commonwealth Games Federation General Assembly will be held in the Federation from 7th to 12th November 2011 at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort.
