The three layers depicted in the logo allude to three elements mentioned in Heritage Saskatchewan’s Vision Statement: The past, present, and future.
While the concept of, “understanding our past to build communities in the present, and inform our choices for the future”, is the primary inspiration behind this logo, the three layers retain other meanings as well.
In the grand scheme of the world, our history can be looked at geologically through layers of earth - each layer representing a different era of time. Each layer contains elements that make it look unique, symptomatic of what the environment was like at its respective time. And with each layer, so much can be gleaned from our past. This logo is a symbol of the examination of what lies in our layers, and progression of what is yet to come.
The hand-drawn quality of the layers offers a feeling of human presence. This is a key aspect of the logo, as it reinforces the concept of Living Heritage - not only as the object of importance, but the process of its production.
