The APAA Singapore 2023 logo features a defined take on Singapore’s iconic skyline, featuring Marina Bay Sands, the Singapore Flyer and the ArtScience Museum in the background, while the foreground showcases the Singapore River.

The horizontal lines of the river represent a fluid movement across time, especially since APAA was first established in 1969 and continues to play an influential role in intellectual property protection in the Asian region.

The use of the colour red depicts passion and confidence amongst the members of the Association, turquoise exudes wisdom, while orange and yellow add a sense of optimism as the association seeks to build more relationships and promote the importance of intellectual property.
