IMO 2015 Logo

The 56th International Mathematical Olympiad or IMO 2015 logo comes from the drawing of an elephant, which has been long linked to Thai history and revered as a national animal of Thailand. The elephant with its trunk raised is a gesture of friendship and respect, symbolizing politeness, humbleness and hospitality of Thai people.

The letter “O” in IMO represents the globe, conveying the meaning of youth coming to Thailand from all over the world to participate in the mathematics competency tests and making friends with each other.

The red, white and blue colors are the colors of Thailand’s national flag.
