90th year celebration - ‘Design a Logo’ Contest

Design a logo contest on the occasion of 90th year celebration of The Himalayan Club

The Himalayan Club, founded on 17th February 1928, will be entering in its 90th year shortly. We are happy to announce Design a Logo Contest on the occasion of the Himalayan Club’s 90th year celebration.

From time to time, using the Himalayan Club’s Chorten logo as the base, some other logos were used by the Club to celebrate various events. These logos were used to commemorate only that particular occasion and the Chorten designed by Cooke remains the main emblem of the club.
