World University Boxing Championship 2016 Logo

From the recent Paralympic Games to the World University Boxing Championship 2016, let’s visit the background and meaning of this championship’s logo. In less than one month “The 7th World University Boxing Championship 2016” will kick off in Chiang Mai University in Chiang Mai Province during this October 3-8, 2016. Everything has been thoroughly prepared, including the important logo that can communicate so much to all the participants. Mr. Setthee Boonchu, Lecturer, College of Art, Medias and Technology, Chiang Mai University, designed the logo by first creating various prototypes. The most outstanding logo was chosen due to its interpretation of Thainess and Chiang Mai University as the host of this competition. Mr. Setthee Boonchu said “We are the host; thus, when the athletes come to compete in our country, we must welcome them proudly as we are the house for them.” “When we think of our home, we think of a Lanna Thai Style house, thus we must think what parts of this house we should represent.” “The important aspect of a Lanna Thai Style house is the gable.” “The gable is a cross symbol on the roof in the form of a U shape. So I think that we should use this symbol.” And thus this is the formal Logo of the 7th World University Boxing Championship 2016, that is attractive, outstanding and suitable for an event that has never before been held in the Chiang Mai Province.
