Bulgaria chooses logo for its 2018 EU presidency

Bulgaria has chosen the logo it will use while holding the rotating presidency of the European Union in January to June 2018.

The winning entry in a competition to design the logo is by Todor Angeliev, who got 76 out of 90 possible points, defeating 179 rivals.

The logo includes three elements – the colours of the Bulgarian flag, lettering in the Cyrillic and Latin scripts, and embroidery.

Meglena Kouneva, a deputy prime minister in Bulgaria’s soon-to-depart Borissov government, said that for six months, the logo will symbolise Bulgaria to the world, as with all the preceding rotating presidencies of the EU.
