FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 emblem

October 28, 2014, the official emblem of FIFA World Cup 2018 hosted by Russia was revealed.

According to officials, the shape of World Cup 2018 logo takes on the universally recognisable outline of the World Cup Trophy, while the bold use of red, gold, black and blue in the emblem’s colour palette was inspired by centuries-old techniques seen in world-renowned Russian art dating back to the earliest icon paintings.
