El Hassan Youth Award Logo

Development and Affiliation

The key to understanding this slogan lies in the meaning of the two words inscribed in the middle:

The first is “development”: to work, in whole and not in part, on the spiritual, emotional, and moral development of the youth including their mental and physical development,

The second is “affiliation”: to God, King and Country, as indicated by the symbol of the Crown. The wheat stem, firmly rooted in the ground, indicates affiliation to Jordan, the greater Arab homeland and humanity as a whole. Here, earth means identity, language and the ability to unleash the energies of the individual and the community as the source of unlimited giving, altruism and joy.
