The official logo, visual identity and slogan for UEFA EURO 2012 were unveiled in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine today. The EURO 2012 co-host countries Ukraine and Poland are looking forward to ‘Creating History Together‘, said uefa.org
The logo has a flower that represents each of the co-host nations and a central ball that symbolizes the emotion and passion of the competition. The stem denotes the structural aspect of the competition, UEFA and European football.
The logo takes its visual lead from ‘wycinanka‘, the traditional art of paper cutting practiced in rural areas of Poland and Ukraine, as a tribute to the fauna and flora of the region. Nature has inspired other features of the visual identity.
The UEFA EURO 2012 matches will be hosted by Gdansk, Warsaw, Poznan, and Wroclaw in Poland and by Lviv, Kharkiv, Donetsk and Kyiv in Ukraine.
