Baku 2015 European Games

The 2015 European Games, also known as Baku 2015 or Baku 2015 European Games, were the inaugural edition of the European Games, an international multi-sport event for athletes representing the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) of the European Olympic Committees. It took place in Baku, Azerbaijan, from 12 to 28 June 2015. The official logo for the 2015 European Games, designed by Adam Yunusov, was inspired by country's ancient and contemporary culture. It brings together five elements of the country's past and contemporary culture: the art of tapestry, fire, water, a bird from Persian mythology - the Simurgh - and a fruit - the pomegranate - symbolizing fertility and abundance. The Baku European Games logo made its first public appearance on Saturday, November 23 2014, on the shirts of the Atletico Madrid football team.)
