This is the logo for the St. Cecilia International Vocal and Instrumental Music Competition. The background is white, and the writing is black. The writing at the top of the logo, written in a rainbow-like arc, reads, 'St. Cecilia IVIMC'. The writing at the bottom of the logo, written in a straight line, reads, 'Amor in lyra et in cantu vivit'. The central image depicts a black silhouette of a female profile, with long flowing hair. The flowing hair includes five long, wavy strands (plus one, much shorter strand at the bottom), resembling music staves, dancing in the wind. In her hair are blue, green, pink and black quavers and semi-quaveres, also dancing, getting smaller as they grow further away from the  face.
