During the FIFA World Cup 2022, Qatar is set to become the first Middle Eastern country to host the global championship tournament. The upcoming event will be held from November 21 to December 18. Qatar was awarded the coveted title of host of the 2022 World Cup in 2010. The country’s winning bid was backed by its neighbors, including Egypt, Lebanon, and Syria. The upcoming tournament will be a great opportunity to showcase the nation’s cultural capital.
The FIFA World Cup 2022 ™ logo was unveiled on September 3rd, at 20:22 Qatar time. Its impressive design is the result of a collaboration between in-house designers and Portuguese design studio Unlock. Its 3D design is the first of its kind for the prestigious tournament. Its swooping curves and floral details are reminiscent of embroidery on traditional shawls worn in the Arab and Gulf region.
The logo’s a tad over-the-top, but it does the job of introducing the country’s culture to the rest of the world. The logo’s slogan aptly is “See you in Qatar” in both Arabic and English. The logo is a nod to the nation’s culture, but does little to highlight Qatar’s football prowess. The logo is best viewed in the country’s signature shade of red, a color that will be worn by the players in the tournament. The logo was designed with a keen eye for cultural relevancy.
The World Cup’s official mascot is named La’eeb and he is a floating ghutrah with an agal. The official logo is a homage to Qatar’s history and the upcoming tournament, which will mark the country’s 60th anniversary of independence from Britain.
The World Cup’s most notable logo is the requisite 3D model, which can be used in videos and ads alike. The logo can be downloaded for free from CityPNG. Aside from the logo, the website also offers hundreds of other free PNG images to choose from. You can also sign up for a free account. Alternatively, you can also take advantage of the site’s daily unlimited downloads, which are available for a minimal fee.
The aforementioned 3D model is available in various sizes. Its resolution is 4096×4096. Its PBR textures can be used in any physic renderer engine and are ready to go. You can even modify the textures yourself by swapping in some of the colors. The file formats have been vetted and tested and are guaranteed to work. You can even download the entire kit as one zip file.
The most interesting part of the 3D model is its subdivision. It can be used for more ambitious projects, such as renderings. The model is a nod to the culture of the region, including its Arabic and Persian origins. The logo is a modern take on the country’s ancient Arabic lettering and calligraphy. Its best features include its ingenious use of a triangular shape to represent a modern football. The logo’s main competition comes from Qatar’s national flag colors.
