The Cayman Islands new Customs and Border Control agency will have a fresh new look when it opens for business January.
The unit, which merges customs and elements of immigration into one entity, unveiled its official logo last week.
The branding will feature on uniforms, buildings, facilities and ports associated with the agency.
“Our new branding is one of many steps we are taking as part of this transformation and amplifies our role as border control officers,” said Charles Clifford.
“All of the elements that were established to create the new logo hold significant meaning, and represent the past and future of border control. The visual icon recognizes our country’s heritage and preserves the legacy of what were formerly Customs and the department of immigration.”
He said the logo – which features three gold stars on a gray and navy shield topped with a crown – contained elements of both organizations’ previous designs as well as a nod to Cayman’s heritage.
Mr. Clifford said the CBC’s focus going forward is to be a global leader in border law enforcement and a trusted partner that helps build a safe, secure and prosperous Cayman Islands.
“A lot of groundwork has taken place behind the scenes to get to this point, but there’s still work to be done,” he said.
“The establishment of the CBC will continue to evolve over the coming months. It’s a multi-phased process, but from the first of January it will be business as usual. We will continue to provide the public with updates as we move closer to the reality of an innovative, purpose-driven, single border-force.”
