  • Time to deliver, together, for the coming generations.

Visual identity of the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union Council

Logo: “The Sun and the Helm”

Designed by Providência Design, the logo, inspired by the European Union flag and its colours – blue and yellow – transforms the 12 stars into a Union of 27, creating a more ample, cohesive and diverse construction. Using elements associated with Portugal, its history, geography and openness to the world, the logo takes these 27 elements and turns them into a sun and a helm to guide the Union on its future journeys, blazing the new trails of cohesion and shared prosperity, while the music is evocative of the sound of the Portuguese guitar, enveloped in modernity.
