The Symbol of the World Telugu Conference represents the history, culture and the glory of the Telugu community from different angles. The 'two snakes' of the imprint are the symbols of their race and wisdom. The Telugus had won world renown for their ship-building and ship voyages even centuries before Christian era. The 'ship' of the emblem is the symbol of excellence. While the 'AmaravatiPoornaKumbha' reflects the glory of the Telugus during the Buddhist period, the 'Kakatiya Gate' is symbolic of their greatness during Kakatiya hegemony. The Swan in the picture stands for their spiritual philosophy and judicious outlook in upholding right and condemning wrong. The geographical sketch of Andhra Pradesh and its capital city Hyderabad in the line drawing of the map of India indicate the nationality of the people and their historic individuality. The geographical sketch tells us that the Telugu community is spread on all directions across the globe. Above all the 3-language principle of Government of India finds its expression in the scripts written Telugu, Hindi and English languages. This official emblem is the symbol of the ideals, objectives and the importance of the World Telugu Conferences.
