The emblem of the Poetic Social Mission in Space.
The content of this post is an adaptation of an original text written by Guy Laliberté.
Last week, I showed you the logo for the Soyuz TMA-16 mission. This week, I would like to introduce the emblem for the Poetic Social Mission and tell you a little bit about it.
I wanted the badge to include several symbolic elements: the water drop, in reference to the logo of the ONE DROP Foundation; planet Earth, as I will see it from space; and the hands of five children not only to represent my own five kids but also to symbolize future generations. The voyage is depicted by the rocket, and the destination by the International Space Station.
Blue is the dominant colour because of its association with water, the source of life. The water drop is the dominant motif; it envelops the Earth and serves as a reminder of the importance we should give it. To remind us of the purpose of the Poetic Social Mission, we have included the ONE DROP motto: WATER FOR ALL, ALL FOR WATER.

Guy Laliberté’s POETIC SOCIAL MISSION in Space was a unique opportunity to share information about water-related issues with the world. His messages spreaded ONE DROP’s dream of "Water for all, all for water."
