Rotary International President-elect Jennifer Jones (who is also our first female president) has announced the 2022-23 theme Imagine Rotary.
“Imagine, a world that deserves our best, where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.”
The theme is a special one: the theme graphic was designed by an Australian Indigenous artist to link with the Melbourne Convention in 2023. Some of the symbolism includes:
✨Circle connections to one another
✨Dots around it - our people
✨There are 7 Dots for Rotary's 7 areas of focus
✨Circle + dots around it - a navigation star, our guiding light
✨Green solid line - digging stick (used when doing hard work); for us it's People of Action, represents the tools for getting things done
✨The colours purple, green & white - celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion
✨Freedom to express ourselves differently but still with a special connection
✨Purple is also the colour of Rotary's Polio campaign
✨Green represents the Environment
✨White stands for peace; it also represents Empowerment and Newness and also the colours were utilised for the women's movement, highlighting the opportunity to grow our female membership.
