The emblem and the catch phrase that is used for “The 6th Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival” were determined, and officially announced on March 25, 2016.
We had a large number of applications from inside and outside of Okinawa prefecture, such as 292 applications for the emblem and 689 for the catch phrase as well. It was selected one piece of work each by the screening board.
Thank you very much for your application.
The catch phrase*
Let the Whole World Move to the Uchina Beat!
