- Inspiration for logo
What does independence mean to a citizen of Trinidad & Tobago? To me, it means we are free to
be ourselves, free to forge our identity in a post-colonial landscape.
That identity, I believe is captured by the flame. Every Trinbagonian has a fire within them that
burns with uplifting energy. We are children of the sun, bright and vibrant like our rich culture and
history. The red white and black plumes represent both national pride and this energy we have as a
nation. This fire is our love for our country that nothing, not even water can put out.
