India and Japan will celebrate the 70th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations this year. The two countries established diplomatic relations on 28th April 1952. To mark this historic occasion, India and Japan have decided to have special logos. The Japanese side had launched its logo earlier this year.

The Ministry of External Affairs had launched a logo design contest in September last year to design the Indian logo. Entries were invited from the public through the MyGov portal. A total of one thousand 131 entries were received. A Screening Committee assessed these entries based on contest parameters and chose a logo as the first prize winning entry.
The logo depicts a Peacock and a Green Pheasant, which are national birds of India and Japan. The logo symbolizes the bond of friendship between the two countries. It has been created by Anup Deo Purty who studied Master of Computer Application at Sardar Patel University, Gujarat. He has wide experience in e-learning, UI and website design.

To mark the 70th anniversary, a number of events are planned to be held in India and Japan throughout the year. These include cultural activities, exhibitions and seminars, covering diverse areas of India-Japan bilateral relations.
