Digital India Logo 

  • The symbolism behind the logo: 
    1. The logo is compromised of two components that represents “d” for digital and “i” for india to match the taxonomy figuratively. 
    2. Binary number format is the foundation of digital technology. In 2nd Century B.C., Pingala from India invented the first binary number system through the usage of positional values of ‘0’ and ‘1’.
    Current logo highlights this binary system through the representation of 0’ and ‘1’.
    3. The logo also signifies “I/O” symbolising “input(I) and output (O)” that is the base of any digital
    computing system. The term I/O is used to describe any program, operation or device that transfers data to or from a computer and to or from a peripheral device.
