Red Eagle - Updated
Three things - football, eagle and pretzels
1/6

Solution

Wanted to incorporate some Germany symbols in the ball shape but make it look more like symbol of a bright future or something. Use the eagle as part of Germany symbolism but make it like fly away like white dove showing the good will of the event, the purpose of bringing the people together for something good and fun. And ... just don't ask about the pretzel

Please describe the creative approach you took to your design

...

Please explain how you incorporated the messages, values and mandatory elements outlined above into your design

It was inspired from a ball graphic design that reminded me of bird in flight - so it was easy from there on to just put all the elements on place ... when the idea is born they just fit together - more about the idea is written just above.

Why should your design become the logo for the bidding phase?

If it's good enough it will become The logo
