The logo of Worldlab 2017 captures the geographical and cultural splendour of Durban, the second largest city in South Africa and the largest municipality on the Indian ocean side of the African continent.

The central feature is the iconic Moses Mabhida stadium, a purpose‐built venue for the 2010 Soccer World Cup, the first time the tournament was staged in Africa. The stadium resembles a futuristic spacecraft. The warmth of the Indian ocean and the spectacular beaches of Durban are reflected in the waves and surfboard. Durban is in the Zulu kingdom province of KwaZulu‐Natal and the Zulu warrior depicts the immense historical and cultural contribution of the Zulu nation, the largest ethnic group in the country, to this province and South Africa.
