About the Expo 67 Symbol

From the official Expo 67 guide:

"The theme of Expo 67 was inspired by the philosophy
of French airman and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
as developed in a book widely read across the world
which the English title is - Man and his World.

As graphic symbol for this concept, Expo 67 adopted
design that drew its inspiration from one of the
known drawings of Man. Eight identical groups
twin figures represent mankind in unity
encircling the world."
