Mission & Structure

Mission

Hong Kong Chronicles Institute (HKCI) is a non-profit organisation established by Our Hong Kong Foundation (OHKF) in August 2019. It aims to publish the first-ever series of Hong Kong Chronicles as a comprehensive historical record on local geography, politics, economy, society, culture and people. In keeping with the tradition of history preservation, policy advisory and education, Hong Kong Chronicles is a treasure of cultural significance by tracing, transcribing and passing down local history and heritage.

Logo

The root form depicted in our logo symbolises an origin and a history which Hong Kong Chronicles seeks to uncover and promote for the people of Hong Kong. These roots represent a foundation upon which a tree is nourished and nurtured as in our mission of preserving and promoting history through local chronicles and supporting Hong Kong’s continued development. The logo design derives from a traditional stamp mark and employs the Chinese characters of “Hong Kong” written in root form to highlight Chinese culture and the authoritative nature of local chronicles.
