The presiding countries of the Council of the European Union show the visual identity of their presidency just before they take over the presidency. The Croatian visual identity of the Presidency of the EU Council will be publicly announced by the decision of the competent authorities immediately before the presidency at the end of 2019, and until then it will not be made publicly available or otherwise made available to the public. Namely, among the EU Member States, there is unwritten rule that the publication of the visual identity of the country’s future chairmanship shouldn’t be done too early, in order not to overshadow the visual identity of the country that is currently presiding.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Affairs of Croatia, the Ministry of Culture of Croatia and the HDD congratulate the awarded teams and thank all contestants on the submitted solutions.
