A universal symbol for Human Rights was announced in New York on 23 September 2011 following a world-wide competition seeking a suitable design. The Human Rights logo is an open source product, free to be used by everyone, everywhere, without restrictions for the purpose of promoting Human Rights.
The logo was designed by 32-year old Serbian graphic designer Predrag Štakić from Belgrade.
See reporting in Deutsche Welle (in English) and German Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt) media release (in German).
The logo in different formats can be downloaded from a Logo for Human Rights.
