Tibet Airlines Brand Identity

Last week I featured 36 Airline logos from China and Hong Kong and amongst them there was the logo of Tibet Airlines. It didn’t take long until I started looking for the design agency who design the brand identity for Tibet Airlines. I quickly found out that Chinese design agency Dongdao created the identity and this is what they have to say about it.

“The idea originates from Khatag and scripture flag, two typical Tibetan elements. Khatag signifies sincerity and purity, hospitality and friendship with people of the world. The scripture flag is a token of a blessed trip. The wing-shaped logo represents a promising future for the company. Also, it resembles a rainbow which hangs over the Roof of the World.”

Tibetan Cavalry armor

A 18th–19th century Tibetan Cavalry armor found via the metmuseum. Here is the decryption of the armor.

“This figure has been assembled based on photographs taken in the 1930s and 1940s in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa during the Great Prayer Festival. The photographs showed troops of ceremonial armored cavalry, who wore a standardized set of equipment as stipulated by the central government of Tibet probably from the mid-seventeenth or eighteenth century onward. The equipment included a helmet, a mail shirt, a set of four mirrors, an armored belt, a bow case and quiver, a matchlock musket, a bandoleer with gunpowder and bullets, and a short spear for the rider, as well as a saddle, saddle rug, and tack for the horse. Armed and equipped in a similar fashion, Tibetan government officials were periodically required to demonstrate proficiency on horseback with musket, bow and arrow, and spear until as late as the mid twentieth century.”
