On 1 July 2010, during the 147th session of the General Assembly of member countries of the BIE, held at their headquarters in Paris, Kazakhstan announced its intention to participate in the bidding process to host the International Specialized Exhibition at Astana in 2017 through Rapil Jochibayev, head of project coordination., hence giving cities with counter-bids six months to respond.

There's the three-leafy thingy, which also appears on flags. Is that an Expo 2017 symbol as well?
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 22 January 2016

Well, the three-leaf thing is also considered an official logo, since it appears on the official website. I believe that the company running the event, “National company “Astana EXPO-2017” (joint stock company) has it as its corporate identity, while the flag (already posted in another thread) is the event's flag.
For example, the official event logo is seen here in this official video of the bid, titled "EXPO 2017 Astana: Master Plan". At 2:48 you can see the logo which is featured on the flag.
