AFRINIC took the opportunity to rebrand at AFRINIC 16 held in Serekunda,
The Gambia, between May 12 and 18, 2012. The rebranding encompassed the
launch of AFRINIC's new logo, and its website.
The new logo which can be seen on our website (www.afrinic.net
<http://www.afrinic.net/>) signifies AFRINIC's dynamism, and the
organisation's commitment to the development of the Internet in Africa
as a catalyst for change. With the impeding depletion of IPv4, the logo
is also a symbol of the future of the Internet with IPv6.
Besides, the new logo is an indication of AFRINIC's place in the global
Internet community. It places the organisation at the heart of the
African Internet community, and development.
The *black* represents AFRINIC's place and commitment to the African
Continent. The *orange* represents the future of the Internet in Africa
with the dawn of IPv6. The dots represent Africa's place in the global
community, and the interconnections created by the Internet.
The slogan "the Link that unites us" is a metaphor that supports
AFRINIC's Mission, Vision and Core values particularly as it strives to
provide fundamentally important services, infrastructures and capacity
The new website demonstrates AFRINIC's continued commitment to its
members, and the African Internet community. The website gives people an
opportunity to access a wide range of materials on AFRINIC.
What's more, this year our Public Policy Meeting hosted among others the
first Africa Internet Summit and the sixth meeting of the African
Government Working Group (AfGWG). This was thus our first Africa
Internet Summit. The Annual Africa Internet Summit will be a platform
where all key development issues faced by Africa will be discussed. The
forum will also provide a more business-oriented structure bringing
together numerous stakeholders including policy makers, operators,
government, and civil society representatives among others.
Please let us know what you think about the logo and the website as we
continually work to enhance services provided to members and the African
