what is xix

. . .

What is the signifigance of the letters XIX in our logo, above top? In fact, they are Roman numbers for "19" - as in article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as pictured above, guaranteeing freedoms of speech.

"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."

One of the leading freedoms of speech groups is named after Article 19 - and for members of the Pacific Freedom Forum, the roman numerals look a bit like traditional motifs as well.
