On 27 July 2018 at the launch of Global Peace, the President of the Republic of South Africa, H.E. Cyril Ramaphosa, together with the Chair of the Board of Trustees of ACCORD, Mrs Graca Machel, officially unveiled the logo of Global Peace. The unveiling was done at the lunch that President Ramaphosa hosted for the twenty two Heads of State and Government and their delegations attending the BRICS Outreach Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa. Global Peace, is an initiative of ACCORD and focusses on bridging the gap between peace and development. The logo for Global Peace is modelled on the ancient Adinkra symbol of the Mpatapo Knot originating in Ghana and is a symbol that represents the bond or knot that binds disputing parties to a peaceful, harmonious, reconciliation.
