SVT, the Swedish national broadcaster has revealed the official logo and slogan for the forthcoming 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.
The graphical appearance for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest has been unveiled Come together! The central symbol of the theme represents an energetic dandelion.
The theme artwork, inspired by the dandelion, symbolises the power of resistance and resilience but also of regeneration – when the seeds fly away from the dandelion new life is created where they touch down. Martin Österdahl the executive producer of Eurovision 2016 adds:
We aim to create an unforgettable show when Europe comes together here in Stockholm and in your living rooms at home. We believe that the idea of unity is as important today as it was in the 1950s when the Eurovision Song Contest started. The Eurovision Song Contest is never about borders, politics or ideologies. It is about reaching across all the boundaries that separates us human beings from each other.
The 2016 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 10, 12 and 14 May at the Ericsson Globen Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
