Centennial Logo

Inspired by the theme for the celebration of the centenary of the Quebec Foreign Mission Society “To run the risk of the encounter at the service of the Gospel 1921-2021”, the logo of the Centenary was designed. It contains the institutional identity and reflects the elements of encounter, risk and service, as part of their own journey along the 100 years of foundation. It is a logo with three elements: the institutional emblem, the human silhouettes and the number and letters.
Symbolic elements
The emblem of the Society. The official emblem of the institute is in the center of the logotype in order to preserve its identity and remembering with gratitude its foundation.

Number and letters. The 100 years of missionary activity are reflected in perspective on the left of the composition accompanied by a bold and capitalized letter to convey the risk, dynamism, and creativity of the missionary activity along the journey.

Human silhouettes. The five human silhouettes represent the five continents and the encounter with the diverse cultures, whereby the Society has been present throughout 100 years of evangelization. The dynamic position of human figures represents the passion and enthusiasm for receiving and giving the gospel, in other words, the joy of the encounter with the gospel.
The colors
Number and letters. It is common to use the color gold for anniversaries to represent a meaningful celebration like this. However, in this case a dark brown earth tone has been used to symbolize the land where the missionaries have walked upon. It is an intense dark brown color to highlight that, in this historical and commemorative context, the science and the Church exhort us the importance of caring for the planet and be responsible steward of the earth
through mission.

The emblem of the Society. The official color of the institutional emblem is preserved to share its identity and promote its charism.

Human silhouettes. The human silhouettes represent the missionary colors of the five continents: red for America, green for Africa, white for Europe, yellow for Asia and blue for Oceania.
