The emblem of the Rwandese Labour Party is a one-colour sky blue of the Rwandan sky, which means the hope for the majority of socialist ideas driven by workers’ willingness ; only one red star is printed in this blue colour. Made up of five equal branches, the star symbolises the light propagated by socialist ideas and the objectives of promoting the rights and powers of workers in Rwanda and in Africa in general.
