The eyeglasses-like shape stands for two "m" s in a word "Metamaterial" as well as nano resonators; building blocks of metamaterials.  The blue color attributed from the logo of Kawata nanophotonics laboratory, RIKEN (originally the color attributed from the RIKEN's logo). Then, red was selected as a new color since combination of red and blue is often used to represent plus and minus of electronics and N and S poles of magnetics; both of them are fundamental elements in electromagnetics. Gold and silver in frames literally represent gold and silver metals, which are key materials in plasmonics and plasmonic metamaterials.
