It is an inverted form of Ebenezer Howard’s three horse shoe magnets in which the chief advantages of living in the Town and the Country were set forth with the corresponding drawbacks, while the advantage of the Town-Country concept of the Garden City are seen to be free from disadvantages of either. While Ebenezer Howard’s three magnets did not have any circles to bind them together, the MIP logo has the three magnets bound by two circles to reflect the need to marry town and country to give new hope, a new life to a developing Malaysia.
