Qatar announces World Cup 2022 logo

Host country Qatar on Tuesday unveiled the World Cup 2022 logo, a modified image of the World Cup trophy, representing a vision of unity with Arabic cultural highlights.

The logo uses a woolen shawl with swooping curves to represent desert dunes, an infinity symbol, and the number eight. The infinity symbol represents the interconnected nature of the World Cup while the 8 is a nod to the number of stadiums that will host the games. A woolen shawl, traditionally worn throughout the Arab and Gulf region during the cooler months, is a reference to the fact that this tournament will be held at the end of the year, with the championship final scheduled for December 18th. The logo's text, derived from Arabic calligraphy, mixes traditional and modern features.
