What does the new Drakenstein Municipality logo symbolise?

Adopted on 24 August 2017 by the Drakenstein Municipal Council, Drakenstein Municipality’s new logo represents excellence empowered by unity:

 The dark blue ridges in the outer frame symbolise Drakenstein’s mountain ranges.
 The lighter blue crescents represent the Berg River as well as the Drakenstein Valley nestled between the mountain ranges.
 The smaller green crescents signify growth, development and agriculture.
 The figure in the centre embodies achievement and excellence. It is also a depiction of the late President Nelson Mandela
     who took his first steps of freedom in Drakenstein and passed on a legacy of reconciliation and selfless dedication to service
     to the community.
