The Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) on Monday unveiled the official logo and theme for the next five years of the Heroes’ Day commemoration.

The theme for the next five years is ‘Honouring Our Martyrs’. It honours and pays tribute to all who gave their all for the country’s liberty and independence.

The event was officiated here by MICT Executive Director, Audrin Mathe, who stated that preparations for this year’s Heroes’ Day commemoration are well underway, with various sub-committees on the ground in Mariental, where the event will take place on 26 August 2022 at the Mariental Show Grounds.

He stated that as part of the country’s commemoration, a new logo and theme are designed every five years to symbolise the country’s ongoing honouring of Namibian heroes and heroines.

According to Mathe, the features in this logo are two Namibian flags that represent peace, unity and common loyalty to the Namibian State.

He went on to say that the Eternal Flame represents the Namibian nation’s eternal remembrance of its heroes’ and heroines’ sacrifices, as well as the nation’s eternal gratitude to them and in memory of war victims.

He added that the silhouette of Three Soldiers represents Namibia’s armed struggle for independence.

“In order to commemorate this important day, all Namibian public and private institutions are encouraged to decorate their attire and work environments with this logo. In this regard, the government invites all Namibians from all walks of life, as well as visitors, to attend the 32nd Heroes’ Day in the Hardap Region,” he stated.

Members of the public will have access to transportation within the Hardap Region, with pick-up points to be announced later.
