THE LOGO OF THE OIA
Based on Burgundy and Golden Yellow, the university colors.
The globe symbolizes the earth; the land on the left side of the globe is the upper part of Taiwan Island, while the curved waterway on the sea symbolizes the channel that the Office of International Affairs(OIA) creates for the National Taiwan University(NTU). The horizontal oval with the initiating letter "O" of the OIA on it, takes the similarity of the shape of the regular switch that is common and easy to use in people's daily lives, which also implies the grounded role of the OIA plays in this scenario. To conclude, this logo suggests that the OIA opens the gateway for the NTU to navigate the world.
