LANA Hangs Banner in Honor of Latin American Heritage Month

The Latin American and Native American (LANA) Employee Resource Group unveiled a new banner this week in honor of Latin American Heritage Month. 

Designed by LANA member and Creative Services Graphic Designer Eduardo de Ugarte, the banner features the new LANA logo which represents the sun sign common across North, Central and South America with the “rays” formed by hands, symbolizing community coming together. It’s also decorated with with flowers and chilies, common across Latin America and the diamonds made up of rainbow triangles are a take-off from ancient wiphala used across indigenous peoples throughout the Andes.

Latin American Heritage Month, also known as Hispanic Heritage Month, runs from September 15 – October 15th.
