Bulgaria: Bulgaria to Keep Old Tourist Logo As All Proposals Rejected

Bulgarian Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova said on Sunday that the country would continue to use its current tourist logo for the moment.

Last week, a special jury in charge of picking a new logo in a nationwide competition said it had turned down all seven entries shortlisted.

Angelkova told private NOVA TV's breakfast show the rose, which has been in use since 2004, will continue to be the tourism trademark of Bulgaria as it turns out difficult to find a commonly accepted national symbol everyone would unite around.

She added that even the public's top choice, which had been singled out in a poll on the Tourism Ministry's website, had not gathered enough support from the jury.

The rose, however, is not Bulgaria's latest logo as the 2013 version was not positively acclaimed by officials.

Angelkova earlier this week admitted it had been widely described as "fried eggs".

A nationwide contest to propose a new logo had been launched to avoid similar situation under a project that uses EU funding.
