Brown Bear Boyan from the Bulgarian Mountains 2
I want my design to represent traditional elements from my country.


I want to create traditional Bulgarian motives / like the traditional "cherga" that is the back of the knife/ and an animal that lives traditionaly in the Bulgarian mountains. That is the Brown Bear. Why Brown Bear Boyan? Because this is a traditional Bulgarian name.

Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

The big brown bear because it is largely spread in our mountains.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

It stands for the Bulgarian culture, the back of the knife represents traditional Bulgarian folklore elements.

What story does your design tell?

The story of the big brown bear that lives in the mountain and wears a colourful sweather.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Minimal in order to create modern look of the traditional elements.

Please make sure you have filled out your country of origin in your profile! It’s important that the regional Victorinox team understands the cultural background of your design.
