Arrows pierce Ondas that are simulations of compass needles, clearly symbolic of direction. The compass runs through Ondas because it is also what binds Ondas. The arrows point NORTH and EAST.
-- The north arrow represents the 10 universal values/principles of our group. No matter how crazy things get, no matter what happens, we always know where “North” is… our moral compass will always guide us.
-- The east arrow represents moving forward…
Black and White have been part of Ondas since its inception… They also play important roles in our ranking sequence. Blue represents the embodiment of Ondas… and White represents the core of learning - always being a student.
NO BERIMBAUS, SILHOUETTES OF CAPOEIRA ETC…
We would like the art to be represented through THE PERSON – not the SHIRT or LOGO. When we come together to represent our entire group at events and special activities, we will wear a logo that represents us all.
--- If you want someone to know you are a capoeirista (at a capoeira event) – then BE THE CAPOEIRA… When we represent Ondas as musicians at an event – We will BE THE MUSICIANS… etc. Placing any one thing in our logo would mean dismissing everything else we do.
Furthermore, there are NO instructor names on the logo. The group belongs to the group.
