Baku 2012: Light your fire!

Baku, Azerbaijan –

The motto for the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest is Light your fire! Along with the slogan, the theme art for the contest was presented in a spectacular show coming live from Baku, Azerbaijan, the Host City of the upcoming edition of Europe’s favourite TV show.

Baku 2012: Light your fire!

If the 2011 contest took place under the slogan Feel your heart beat!, Baku 2012 will go into the history books under the motto Light your fire!

Azerbaijan has been known as the Land Of Fire for a while now and the symbol of fire and flames is used extensively across the country. The people of Azerbaijan also take great pride in this association with fire.

“Since the dawn of time, mankind has come together around fire to communicate through the telling of stories, song and dance. The Eurovision Song Contest is where people come together to celebrate and communicate through song and dance,” the creators explained the idea behind the theme art.

All of that can be seen visually in the theme art of the 2012 edition of Europe’s favourite TV show. By the way, if you look at the main symbol closely, you can see much more in it, than you’d expect at first glance.
