Ministry of Defence invites Logo Designs from Indian citizens to mark the stellar victory over Pakistan in December 1971 that led to the creation of Bangladesh.


The Ministry is set to celebrate Swarnim Vijay Varsh on December 16, 2021, to mark the 50th year of the famous victory. Several events are being planned, during the year commencing from December 2020 till  16 December 2021. In this connection, MoD proposes to commission a distinct Logo which will uniquely identify all events connected to the Swarnim Vijay Varsh celebrations. Contestants may adhere to the following guidelines while designing the logo:-

(b) Logo should commemorate the achievements of our Armed Forces rather than mocking/maligning our adversary.

(c) Weapon/equipment, if depicted in logo, should be the one in use by the Indian Armed Forces during 1971 War.

The last date of submission of entries is November 11, 2020. The winning logo will be awarded a cash prize of Rupees 50,000 (Rs. Fifty thousand only).
