The Meaning of the Epcot Logo as Written by Marty Sklar

As part of the D23Fanniversary event today at the 35th Anniversary Celebration at Epcot, we were treated to an awesome panel that showcased 35 things you didn’t know about Epcot.

We’ll share more about those 35 things later, but we thought we’d share this gem that the presentation ended with; the meaning of the Epcot logo according to the late Disney Imagineer, Marty Sklar!

The EPCOT Center logo symbolizes unity, fellowship and harmony around the world. Five outer rings are linked to form the shape of a flower — a celebration of life. The heart of the logo is the Earth, embraced by a star symbolizing hope — the hope that with imagination, commitment and dedication, we can create a better tomorrow.
