Spring Symposium 4th-6th OF MARCH 2019
Infocenter, Auditorium 2

LOGO Gallery


The moose (Alces alces) is the largest and heaviest extant species in the Deer Family (Cervidae). Moose inhabit in the Northern Hemisphere, including Fennoscandia. They are tolerant to cold weather, as moose have thick skins, and a low surface:volume ratio. Moose, however, are not so tolerant to hot weather. During hot days, you may find them wading or swimming in a pond or a lake. Moose are herbivores and feed on both terrestrial and aquatic vegetation, such as fresh birch shoots and waterlilies.

The moose that has been in the cover of all Symposium abstract books is drawn by Ph. Lic. Päivö Somerma in the late 1980's, and was originally used as the LOGO of the Department in stationeries. The model of the moose is the statue located in front of the Museum of Natural History in Helsinki and has been sculptured by Jussi Mäntynen, a former conservator in the Zoological Museum.

Keeping the moose as the traditional character, creative LUOVA students redesign the LOGO each year and keep creating new history of the Spring Symposium LOGOs.

Keeping the moose as the traditional character of the Spring Symposium, I added a waterlily and a dragonfly, towards which the moose swims, to make the LOGO look "ecological". The pink variety of the two waterlily species in Finland and the green hawker (Aeshna viridis) are protected by Finnish law, which reflects part of the symposium theme.

Spring is all things recovery - warm red, flowers in full blossom and revived wildlife.
