The 76th General Convention • July 8–17, 2009 • Anaheim, California
Ubuntu: 76th General Convention Theme
The Ubuntu logo of the 76th General Convention was adapted from a design submitted in a contest, sponsored by the Joint Standing Committee on Planning & Arrangements.
The winning design was submitted by the Rev. Paul Fromberg, a member of the Episcopal Church and the Visual Arts. The Trinitarian design depicts God the Creator in the bright center, God the Son in the cross formed by the longitude and latitude lines and God the Holy Spirit, swirling around the Father and the Son. The swirl is comprised of dancing figures, male and female, with faces of many colors, who symbolize the interconnectedness of humanity.
The word Ubuntu is spelled out in a font especially created for General Convention by Mel Ahlborn together with a quotation from the Gospel of John.
