ADULAWO News reports that the new law provides some details of the new logo as follows:


The Circle- The circle replacing the shield symbolised perfection and wholeness.

Y – Though not clearly depicted through the placement of the water, earth, and mountains, in the circle. It represents the three Senatorial districts in Osun State united as one hence the lack of delineation between all three elements.

Osun River: is represented, connected to a Waterfall; Osun state being “State of the Living Spring”, the River situated on the upper part of the Y supplies water to the fertile Brown Agricultural soil of the land on the left. It also wets the Mountains on the right of the Y. The Waterfall also supplies water that nourishes the Leaves and the Cocoa seeds, which also houses the fishes. In essence this represents the source of life and nourishment in Osun State.

Brown Agricultural Soil- This represents fertility and is a source of food. It is located on the left side of the Y.

Mountains- Osun State is renowned for its hills and mountains, hence the distinct representation. It is located on the right side of the Y. Mountains in various contexts represent tourism, hospitality, and spirituality. It is a symbol to draw strength.

Ori Olokun- The Ori Olokun stands for the common origin of the Yoruba race and a great symbol of Osun State especially for Royalty.

The rays of light (Imole in Yoruba)- This represents one of the state symbols as it is depicted in the State Anthem. It symbolizes clarity, enlightenment, hope and guidance, often representing knowledge, truth and understanding. Its placement at the top clearly represents its importance in the state as its rays touch every element/symbol of the state thereby bringing light (progress, success and clarity) to it.

1991- the year the state was established.
