The Commission on Fatherhood recently introduced its logo, designed by Jonathan Zane.

Designer Zane offered the meaning behind the logo. “The hand is holding or supporting the kalo, which is extremely important in Hawaiian culture because it serves as a symbol of ancestry, heritage and family as well as sustenance and life.”

He continued about the meaning of the triangle. “The triangle has a dual meaning as it is both a symbol of the family (three points representing the mother, father and child) and safety and shelter of the home.” He further noted that it could also symbolize the sharks tooth, which Hawaiians view as a symbol of masculinity, protection, and strength and is also incorporated in the border.
