More About COHEART

“For harmony among Man, Animal and Nature”

The logo embodies COHEART’s motto of harmony among Man, Animal and Nature–with the epicenter of all new ideas and inspirations–“Heart” at its masthead and a catchy acronym “COHEART“ for a concept embedded in the philosophy of “co-existence”. It shows “C” depicting collaboration and “O with globe” depicting One Health as a global movement and the Heart formed by hands of Man and Animal embedded in leaf symbolizing strong relationship of Man and Animal with their environment. KVASU logo is depicted in the form of SUN whose importance goes beyond any obvious benefits being the creator of this centre.
