About the Deaflympics logo
Deaf graphic designer Ralph Fernandez, who designed the Deaflympics logo in 2003, explains the meaning of the logo:
"It ties together strong elements: Sign language, deaf and international cultures, unity and continuity."
"The center of the logo represents the iris of the eye, which defines deaf people as visual people; they must use their eyes to communicate."
"The logo incorporates the four colors of the national flags of the world. The red, blue, yellow and green represent the four regional confederations – the Asia Pacific Deaf Sports Confederation, the European Deaf Sports Organization, the Pan American Deaf Sports Organization and the Confederation of African Deaf Sports." -- Source
