Living with open hands is an expression of an open mind, open heart, and open will. I feel that this is what the Germany represent. The open hand is what you first give to someone when you meet, it symbolizes compassion and desire for unity. It symbolizes that another person is welcome and you do not want to harm anyone. We can also look at our fingers like separate persons/nations, separated are not capable of big works, but together, the limits of possibilities do not exist.
Please describe the creative approach you took to your design
Colors of German flag are central, most visible, combined with other most used colors of european flags. I wanted to present my idea through a design that shining with joy and enthusiasm. I did not want the hand to be too obvious, nor a football ball. I wanted artistic approach.. logo that looks like small piece of art, with various elements that are perfectly integrated into one whole image
