The government has made public a logo for commemorating the 70th anniversary of the end of the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and World War II.

The logo highlights a striking, dominant red number “70” in the center. Above the “70” five doves fly over and behind it the Great Wall spreads in the shape of letter “V.”

The “V” symbolizes victory and the unity of Chinese nation, according to the State Council Information Office. The five pigeons demonstrate the memory of history and the aspiration for peace, representing people from the five continents united and moving together towards a beautiful future after going through “bloods and fire.”

The doves also symbolize the Chinese people are flying to a future of great rejuvenation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, according to the office.

The logo cannot be made into trade marks or used for any commercial purposes, and products featuring the logo are not allowed on the market, the office said.
