“The new typeface created to accompany the emblem re-imagines traditional Arabic calligraphy in a new, contemporary font, taking inspiration from the region and Asia, and fusing tradition with modernity,” the statement continued.
Across the globe, the emblem appeared on buildings and giant screens of many big cities like New York, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Santiago, Mexico City, Johannesburg, London, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Madrid, Moscow, Mumbai, Seoul and 10 districts across Turkey.
