In this logo, the text and the icon are interdependent.
White and light blue evoke the Argentinian flag, while red and blue recall the flags of many English-speaking countries.
The circular shape and font symbolise the circle of life, the endless process of teaching and learning, of interaction and communication between members and the community.
The letter “A” represents us as Argentinian citizens and is also the initial letter of the name of our Association.
