New look for Expo

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A new logo for the Dubai Expo 2020 has been se­lected and was in­spired by a 3,000-year-old gold ring that was dis­cov­ered in the desert last year. Even though the Expo au­thor­ity re­ceived 19,000 sub­mis­sions to be con­sid­ered from all over the world, Reem Al Hashimi, Di­rec­tor General of Bureau Dubai Expo 2020, told an event in Dubai last night the ring is what “spoke to the leader of Dubai” best. It was found at Sarouq Al Hadeed dur­ing con­struc­tion work. Al Hashimi said that ev­ery one of the 19,000 en­tries will be fea­tured on the Expo site in 2020. She said: “We chose the ring be­cause it was very small, but it was very de­tailed. “So it tells you that the an­cient civil­i­sa­tion that lived un­der our coun­try was very cre­ative.”
