New Logo

The new logo, designed by a teacher in the Design Faculty of Lanzhou Transportation University, is inspired by images combining a Baoxiang Flower (a traditional Chinese pattern at the base of lotus and peony, symbolizing treasure and happiness) and a wheel in the wind. 6 rotating petals occupy the outside of the design, indicating that the CIEF opens a window to the world. The red color symbolizes luck and festivity and the entire image resembles a Chinese pinwheel, predicting the CIEF propitious development.
