The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has adopted a new logo inclusive of the three national colours in an effort to break the colour divide that has previously prevailed among political organisations in the country.
Party Leader Senator Nazim Burke told supporters during the unveiling of the new logo last week Thursday that the party has decided to “put our money where our mouth is in a manner of speaking (and has) re-branded so as to include all three national colours Red, Gold and Green in our branding.”
Sen. Burke said the “re-branding signals the new approach of the NDC and its commitment to break the colour divide…taking an inclusive approach to governance.”
He said, “this is a decision of a party that has the courage to say colours must not divide our nation (and that) we are all Grenadians.”
According to Sen. Burke, the NDC is “prepared to demonstrate in word and in deeds that there is a place for every Grenadian on this journey and that not a single person would be left out.
“So from here on when they say Green, we say (we are) Green also; when they say Gold we say we are Gold also. These are the national colours and we must embrace Green, Red and Gold,” he declared.
According to NDC Party Chairman, Vincent Roberts, the re-branding is “something the people asked for.
“We have heard your call,” he affirmed.
“You will notice that the heart remains (as) it is the registered symbol of the NDC and represents our love and commitment to the people and patrimony of our nation,” Roberts explained.
“ The new branding also signals a departure from the past and the embracing of new attitudes, different approaches, new thinking, the application of new technologies and methodologies and the indication of a new hope and a new level of tolerance among us all, he said.
The NDC Chairman also used the opportunity to solicit financial support to assist the party moving forward.
“We cannot do this alone and we are depending on you to spread the word and assist us in any way possible…we are depending on the people’s support to take us into (the next) government through an election but we need your financial support as well.
“We are not embarrassed to say to you that if we had more funding and more finance we would have been able to do a lot more, a lot faster for more people.
“Anyone who is in a position to assist please contact your caretaker or an officer of the party and indicate your willingness and preparedness and you will be informed of the way in which you will be accommodated.
The new NDC logo was unveiled last week Thursday simultaneously with the party’s presentation of its 13-year (2017-2030) Policy agenda at the Grenada Trade Centre in Morne Rouge, Grand Anse, St. George.
