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.
