The official slogan of the Korea-Russia Year of Cultural Exchanges is “Friendship. Trust. Action.” (“Дружить. Доверять. Действовать.”) Its associated symbol (logo) uses a patten derived from preeminent examples of architectural culture in both countries, including Gyeongbokgung Palace in Korea and Saint Basil’s Cathedral in Russia. It was designed to be readily understandable by people in both countries, while expressing the hope of developing the 30th anniversary of their diplomatic relationship into a bright and future-oriented festival of friendship.
