Anyone who visits the new Fako America website or makes a stop at FA’s online FA Gift Shop cannot but notice the impressive and very professional logo that adorns both sites, and which is found on all items at the shop. This logo was conceived and designed by none other than our own Mola Dr. Emil Isuma Mondoa who has, without doubt, been at the forefront of the Fako cultural renaissance within the Fako Diaspora community.
The logo, which brings back to life the long forgotten original Fako America motto that was coined Mola Mbua Efange, pioneer FA President, is laden with symbolism.
The TWO MAIN PEAKS of our mountain country are recognized: the giant Mount Fako and the smaller Mount Etinde. The symbol of the two peaks is the right to coexist. A child deserves to be fully realized within a family; so does an ethnic nation within a larger country or region. It is possible for that larger entity to exist without infringing on endangering the existence of the smaller entity.
The SWATH represents the spirit of cooperation and family that ties together all Fako people. The predominance of RED in the symbol represents the element of fire, the vigour of youth and renewal. It represents the Bakweri renaissance as we revisit, learn, revive and sharpen our culture and make it relevant to our children and the future.
