A logo inspired by the spiral of the Gran Canaria artist Martín Chirino (1954-2019) will commemorate the 40 years of parliamentarism in the Canary Islands, an image that will serve to frame a series of acts and activities that will highlight the importance of this period of insular history and that will be will develop until the end of 2022.
This was made clear this Thursday during the presentation of the badge that took place at the hands of the president of the Parliament of the Canary Islands, Gustavo Matos, and the creator of the image himself, Esteban Ferraz.
Precisely Matos made special emphasis on the importance of this commemoration for the archipelago, since with the meeting of the so-called ‘Provisional Parliament’ in December 1982 after the approval of the Statute of Autonomy of the Canary Islands, the autonomy of the Canary Islands really began, while the first regional elections would be held in 1983.
Thus, this tenth legislature marks 40 years and the Presidency of the Chamber has wanted to commemorate this date with a series of acts and initiatives that pay tribute to these four decades of parliamentarism.
“On December 22, 2022, these four decades of parliamentarism will culminate and today, in this tenth legislature, commemorative acts begin that we want to become a tribute to all the men and women who have passed through this house, as well as to those who they have been part of the Parliament family, “he said.
AN IMAGE INSPIRED BY MARTÍN CHIRINO
As for the logo, it is an image that is inspired by Martín Chirino’s spiral, a spiral “that has many interpretations” but also has to do “with our ancestors.”
“Not only does it represent a figure that has a specific symbolism,” said Matos, “but it also reminds us of our oldest roots, those aboriginal paints who are also part of the pre-Hispanic legacy that is rooted in our own culture and that Chirino knew how to interpret by giving it another symbolism “.
