  • The icon includes our name in Chinese and English in the outer circle.
  • The second circle is the shape of a plum blossom, which is the city flower of Nanjing, where we are located. It is also the same shape from the Logo of Hohai University, which is one of the partners which initiated us.
  • The part in the middle is the combination of “the community of shared life between mountain, water, forest, land and lakes”. The lower part standards for water and green land. The element embedded in the blue river could be either a hand or a fish, which stands for our ambition for the protection of water resources and biodiversity. The upper part includes mountain in a distance. It is one of the parties sharing the livelihood of nature and also the peak of knowledge we are pursuing in the field of water science. The upper most longitudinal and latitudinal lines set up our goal of becoming a world class organisation with a focus on the Yangtze.
  • YICODE is the abbreviation of our English name.
  • Y and I comes from Yangtze Institute.
  • CODE comes from COnservation and DEvelopment. We hope our work could contribute to the code of conduct in managing world’s rivers.
