Learn About the Logo of the 14th WWC
We are pleased to unveil the official logo of the 14th World Wushu Championships in Kazan, Russia. The elegant logo visually references some important symbols of Kazan. Here are some facts provided by the Kazan LOC to help explain the logo and bring it to life.
The symbol of Kazan is Zilant – a flying snake or so-called dragon. It is also the city’s coat of arms. The dragon is also an important symbol of China, the country from which wushu originated. This symbolically references the connection between China and Kazan in the WWC logo. One main feature of a dragon is his ability to breathe fire from its mouth — which the artist took for the form of the logo. At the same time, the form of the logo also references the martial arts greeting action “baoquanli,” a movement widely used in wushu. The logo’s colors can also be found in Kazan’s republic and flag.
