The emblem of the civilian division also draws on the traditional symbols of the Czech Republic, as well as on Afghanistan’s official colors.  It aspires to be a protective good luck charm shielding its bearer.

PRT emblem

The shape of a shield has been used as a central motif designed in a neutral way, not referring to a specific time or emblem. The two translations in local languages, Pashtu and Dari, are placed over a dominant sign in Roman script, thereby gaining the forefront. The actual text “PRTeam Logar”, typed in the sans-serif font, contrasts with a vivid line with the letter “g”  in calligraphic style.  The calligraphy turns gradually into the shape of a heart – a symbol of help, and a linden leaf – a symbol of the Czech Republic. The color scheme of black, red and white draws on the Afghan flag and refers to the place of work of the mission.
