Qatar has unveiled the 2022 FIFA World Cup emblem and the logo in its capital Doha
The emblem is now being projected to various landmarks in Doha as well as around the world.
The unveiling took place at Doha as thousands of spectators gathered to witness the synchronised projection of the emblem onto a number of the country’s most iconic buildings, including Burj Doha, Katara Cultural Village Amphitheatre, Souq Waqif and Al Zubarah
Organisers say the logo is inspired by the traditional woolen shawl usually worn during winter months in the Arab and Gulf regions.
It also echoes the number eight, which refers to the eight stadiums that will host the 2022 tournament.
The launch marks a step closer to the first World Cup to be staged in the Middle East, which begins in just over three years
