Filling a large area, on the left side of the page, is a stylized image of the Earth. The land masses of the world are depicted by a montage of light green symbols meant to represent girls, including the gender symbol denoting female, the women’s washroom symbol and a female smiling-face symbol. Surrounding the land masses is a montage of the same symbols in pale aqua blue, indicating the oceans of the world. On the right side of the image, in white letters are the following lines: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE Girl, On October 11 (circled in blue) we celebrate the International Day of the Girl, Because..., Girls are leaders, Girls make a difference and Girls’ rights matter.
