    “football is often marked out as a game for warriors”… you’ve obviously not seen the recent antics of Rooney, Gerrard, Drogba, Ronaldo, Ngog etc etc etc & so on… they’re warriors in the same way The Power Rangers are warriors!

    i think it’s cool, but then again i am a girl!
    seriously though, considering that the world of football (or at least the fans at times) seem to believe that money grows on trees (or some variety of plant) and that many of the top players of the world seem to think/act that they live in a disney-facated reality (sorry bout the spelling) then the logo above is actually quite appropriate if you think about it. And delboy’s comment makes a good point – exactly how many footballers can you describe as a 100% macho man (you probably wouldn’t need all your fingers to count them lets be honest)
    Plus it’s better than the london 2012 logo (then again ALL sporting logos in the history of time is better than the london 2012 one so that’s not a stretch!)

    I actually find this logo confusing and complicated. What does the central bud of the flower symbolize, if the two other buds are the national colours? There has been another, much simpler logo in use, which was a white football with two of the hexes highlighted with the national colours of the two countries. It was better than the flower. Why change it? They could have adapted it into a bud shape, if they wanted a growth symbol.

    This said, if girls like the flowery symbol then that is great. Girls’ football is a growth sport at schools. And football is being ruining by male yobbos at games, and men do tend to behave slightly better when there are women around, the hostility tends to get simmered down. So the more women the merrier. It would be nice if football becomes a family event one day, rather than what we have now: a pitched battle between idiotic male fans who have too much time because they’re on the dole.

    It looks very old-fashioned to me, sort of 1890′s art nouveau crossed with 1960′s psychedelia. I don’t understand what it’s trying to say. Perhaps the designer(s) were on too many MADs.

    ok, since I live in Poland actually, I guess I can answer some questions about the logotype.

    so, flowers are very popular element in both Ukrainian and Polish folk art. Plus, the whole presentation is really nice. I love the flowers representing this event, and if this might bring a bit more peaceful games than they usually are, I can only say this is a great choice.

    love it, love it, love it.
    especially because football fans in Poland tend to be really aggressive. so, may the flowers keep them away from the games.

    love, people.
