States Division, MEA invites entries from interested persons for logo of States Division, proposed to be used in the Division's micro-site. In order to have a clear understanding of the requirement of the logo, a brief background of States Division in MEA including inter-alia the functions and objectives of the Division are outlined below:

"States Division was created in the Ministry of External Affairs in October 2014 with the aim of achieving effective coordination with States and Union Territories in furtherance of their efforts to promote exports, tourism and attract more overseas investment and expertise. The objective of the Division is facilitation of efforts between our Mission/Post(s) and Governments of States/Union Territories as well as foreign diplomatic and trade missions in India, for all round development of States. It also aims to assist States and Union Territories by sharing with them, where required, this Ministry’s experience and expertise through training and capacity building in areas relating to their external affiliations. The Division aims to promote the outreach of the States of India with the external world and to that effect promotes, coordinates, connects and facilitates activities of States in the domain of trade, investment, tourism, cultural outreach with the external world. The States Division also promotes twinning arrangements at provincial level with the provinces and sub-regions of foreign countries to further enhance bilateral relations.

With a view to expand its outreach and accessibility, States Division is developing an official micro-website portal as a one-stop platform for Missions/State Governments and foreign stakeholders. The micro-site will be hyperlinked to the parent website of MEA and would include latest facts about the Division, detailed scope of work of the division, quick contacts, social media links of the division, relevant information on state government, photo gallery and progress page as its essential features. The micro site will also be used for posting factual developments coordinated by States Division and its initiatives taken to assist investment, trade, culture, tourism, diaspora matters and relief operations/evacuations etc.

Creation of a logo for States Division shall help in establishing its own distinct identity. It would provide a digital imprint for the Division that would be used on the independent website for the Division, when it becomes functional.

The two people shaking hands symbolises the relation of trade between India and foreign countries. The briefcase in the back pictures about the item or goods being traded from one country to the another. It creates a sense of friendlyhood between our neighbouring countries.#MEA #MyGov #LogoDesignContest

This logo draws heavily on symbolism. This is a tiger (instead of the normal lion) studded on the Ashok Stambh. The tiger has a single horn, antlers, and a mane, signifying the national animal (hence, the centre) supporting the essence of the state animals (Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Gujrat). Balanced on the Arunachal Gayal's horns is a globe, signifying how the state and the center are linked to the countries of the world. The Ashok Stambh signifies the authority of the entire system as Indian.
