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.
