Sangam

Sanskrit for "going together" and pronounced Song'g'm, the fourth and final World Center officially opened  October 16, 1966. The opening date was chosen so that delegates from the 19th World Conference in Tokyo could plan to attend. The 7+ acre site is located in India on the bank of the Mulla River.
 
Information gleaned from the WAGGGS and Sangam web sites mention that the symbolism of the logo is based on the yin/yang symbol of balance. The mascot of Sangam is an elephant named Sangelee.
