Muscat: The Ministry of Sport Affairs approved the logo of the Ship for World Youth Oman Committee which was promulgated by a ministerial decision in July 2019.
The committee is tasked with qualifying Omani youths for the participation in the ship’s programme organized by the Empire of Japan as well as preparing programmes and activities to be implemented during the voyage with the aim of familiarising with the Sultanate and strengthening friendship relations with the world youths.
The logo of the Ship for World Youth Oman Committee was designed in two major components indicating Oman’s maritime heritage (symbolized by a ship’s wheel with a dagger handle inside) and name of the committee in English and Arabic.
The Omani committee is a founding member of the world association of Ship for World Youth based in Japan. The Sultanate’s participation began in 1990. The Ship for World Youth Oman Committee is a full-fledged internationally recognised member of the association.
