Swallows are the only migratory birds in all of the continents, latitudes and altitudes.
During the migration, swallows fly nearly 300-350 kilometres a day and at the end of their migration,they refind their nests which they nidificate earlier.
Swallows need unlimited independence for living . Therefore, swallow bird represents freedom and faithfulness.
Millions of swallows migrate in harmony and steady continent to continent…
Like swallows, human-beings have migrated or obliged to migrate for centuries…
Our country is in high standing and critical position in European migratory routes in terms of geography and geopolitics. Our waxing economy transforms our country a centre of attraction.
In terms of recent migration movements, Turkey’s position of a ‘’transit country’’ has underwent change and become a ‘’target country’’ at the same time.
With the Law on Foreigners and International Protection, an effective asylum and migration management has been grounded on a legal and stable base. This law is the assurance of migrants’ and international protection seekers’ rights. A specialized agency was formed in the field of migration management with the Law on Foreigners and International Protection. A newly established instutition which is innovative, open to international collaboration, keeps pace with dynamic pattern of migration fact and manages this dynamic pattern by forming a institutional identity : Directorate General of Migration Management began to work.
The logo of Directorate General of Migration Management is formed of harmonisation and association of stylised figures of ‘’the star and crescent and swallow’’.
While the figure of ‘’the star and crescent’’ represents Turkey, the figure of bird which is abstracted from swallow represents migration. Our institutional colour is red and white colour of our flag.
Inward direction of the bird means migration to our country. Vertical lines at the end of logo writing symbolise our limits on delicate issues such as public order and security in the field of migration. Quadrant covering figure of swallow in the logo states our feeling of pity and protection existed in every periods of our history for aggrieved migrants in need.
Corporate signature of Directorate General of Migration Management, which was established with logo and accompanying corporate identity work and with the mission and will of managing migration, was formed.
