Crimea Gets New Logo Year After Russian Annexation

Art.Lebedev Studio has unveiled a new logo for Crimea.

While the West continues to dispute the legality of Russia's annexation of Crimea a year ago, the hip Moscow-based Art.Lebedev Studio has unveiled a new logo for the sunny peninsula.

The studio on Tuesday published the new logo on its website, saying it had been designed as a stencil with different Crimea-inspired backgrounds, including themes like sea, beach and camouflage.

The logo is available in two languages: Russian and English.

Art.Lebedev also published a letter dated October from Crimea's tourism minister, Yelena Yurchenko, in which she called on the designers to put forward their suggestions for a new logo.

"We would be honored if you would suggest … a new brand for Crimea that could be used in the infrastructure of Crimea, on the labels of Crimea-made products and which would signify an original high-quality tourist product," Yurchenko said in the letter.

Аrt.Lebedev previously designed the official logos for the Russian cities of Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Perm.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
