"The logo chosen for the VBR incorporates a representation of Aloe lutescens, a plant endemic to the area within South Africa. The VBR is well known for both its diversity and high degree of endemism amongst Aloes, a plant family that is particularly associated with, and characteristic of, Southern Africa. The scientific name lutescens means full of light, pertaining to the flowers turning from red to bright yellow when opening.

Most Aloes have not only an aesthetic beauty but also have many beneficial uses.

Throughout the ages Aloe sap has been used medicinally acting as a skin ointment, hair conditioner and burn treatment, just to mention a few."
