In 1993, the Slavyansky Bazaar in Vitebsk became a member of the International Federation of Festival Organizations (FIDOF), broadening the geography of its participants. In 1999, the number of festival events turned 125. The festival was awarded the diploma 'FIDOF Festival of the Year 2000' "for impeccable quality of organization, professionalism, hospitality, and promotion of noble humanistic aims on the international level". From 1995 the Slavyansky Bazaar was given the title of an International Festival of Arts. And in 2000 the Slavyansky Bazaar hit a towering record by joining together on stage representatives of each and every Slavonic nation. The festival sign (logo) represents a graphic drawing of a cornflower (traditional for Slavic people), located on music notes. On the lines of the notes, symbolising different music styles, there is a verbal logo "Slavyansky Bazaar in Vitebsk" in Belarusian, which determines the permanent location of the festival. The name of the festival is repeated in Belarussian and English around the festival sign. Festival motto: "Through art - to peace and understanding!" This motto reveals the basic ideas of the International Festival of Arts "Slavyansky Bazaar in Vitebsk".
