Inspired by the Eurovision 2019 event slogan, Dare to Dream, the EBU and Israeli Host Broadcaster KAN are delighted to unveil this year's artwork; three triangles which, when united, shine together to create a golden star.

Reaching for the stars

Revealing the concept behind the logo, Israeli Host Broadcaster KAN said: "The triangle, one of the world's oldest shapes, is a cornerstone symbol found universally in art, music, cosmology and nature, representing connection and creativity. As the triangles join and combine, they become a new single entity reflecting the infinite stellar sky, as the stars of the future come together in Tel Aviv for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest,” explained upon revealing the icon.

Inspiration

This year’s logo takes inspiration from Florian Wieder’s stage design, whose concept uses triangular shapes and structures.

The slogan and logo have been created by two leading Israeli branding agencies; Awesome Tel Aviv who developed the creative concept, and Studio Adam Feinberg (ST/AF) who created the logo.

Three versions

Apart from the main icon, two alternative versions have been designed:

The primary logo colour is the blue version and will be used in most cases. All logos will be used in a variety of ways running up to the two Semi-Finals and the Grand Final, including being displayed throughout the city of Tel Aviv in May.

Jon Ola Sand, the EBU’s Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, said: "We are delighted with the logo accompanying KAN’s slogan for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest - Dare to Dream – which perfectly complements the fantastic angular stage design created by Florian Wieder. We hope the creative theme for this year’s competition inspires the 42 contestants coming together in Tel Aviv in May, as they dream of becoming the stars of the future"
