The WISA logo represents the change in water, from polluted, dirty water to fresh and clean water. The WISA coat of arms was designed by a gentleman by the name of Robert Laing. The logo includes the Kingfisher as the main feature, the Kingfisher can be seen holding a fish in its mouth, representing a strong need for fresh and clean water resources. The motto “Aqua Vita Est” can be seen at the bottom of the logo, which translates to “Water is Life”. The black area, containing white spots represents polluted water with gas bubbles rising, a bridge is also found in the logo representing the process to the production of clean water.
