 Subject: Graphic of a globe with longitudinal and latitudinal lines that divide the globe in white and yellow fields, and of which the lower right quadrant, i.e. the southeastern world part, is replaced by a green Venus symbol, i.e. the international sign for the female sex, of which the circular part has a reddish field with the silhouette of a map of Thailand in orangey yellow. Partly around the globe is in Thai the name of the event, i.e. ‘kaan prachum yai saphaa satrih rawaang prathet krang thih 26’ (การประชุมใหญ่สภาสตรีระหว่างประเทศ ครั้งที่ ๒๖), followed by its English equivalent in a shortened form, namely ‘26th ICW - Triennial’. In the bottom right corner is the logo of the International Council of Women, i.e. a oval field with a map of the world and some banners and the Latin slogan Omnia Quacumque Vultis Ut Faciant Vobis Homines Et Vos Facite Illis, i.e. ‘In Everything, Whatever You Wish That Men Would Do To You, Do To Her’, i.e. a variant on the Vulgate text of Matthew 7:12. Here the field is yellow and the world map is in purple.
