Keeping up with tradition, this logo has been designed as a coat of arms with highlights on the historical landmarks and attractions on the Grand Port District, namely: the landing of the Dutch, the famous battle of Vieux Grand Port, our main international airport in Mauritius and the slavery memorial not to mention the rich fauna of and the unique attractions of this multi-facetted district. The blue lagoon with its myriad of islands, the legendary Mahebourg regatta and the fortresses that once protected this part of the island enhance the overall aesthetic look. The main image icon is itself surrounded, as if protected, by the District Council of Grand Port illustrated in a simple and legible typography that adds a touch of class to the logo.
