ESC motto 2017: “Celebrate Diversity”


The Ukrainian TV station NTU announced on Monday the so-called claim and logo of the Eurovision Song Contest: The Grand Prix in Kiev will be held under the motto “Celebrate Diversity”.The slogan is complemented by a logo based on the traditional Ukrainian pearl necklace called Namysto. In the logo, the necklace consists of many different pearls, none of which is similar to the other, and is thus intended to symbolize diversity and individuality. In Ukraine, the Namysto jewelry is also considered a protective amulet and a symbol of beauty and health.”The idea of ​​celebrating diversity builds on ‘Come Together’, the motto of last year, that is one of Eurovision’s core values,” said Jon Ola Sand, executive supervisor of the world’s largest music competition. Diversity embraces all countries in Europe and beyond. “We’re coming together to celebrate our similarities and our differences – and also great music,” said Sand., 43 countries at the start, at ESC 2017, 43 countries will participate – as many as last in Dusseldorf. Romania and Portugal, who did not participate last year, will return. For financial reasons, Bosnia-Herzegovina is no longer present.In recent years, the claims of the Eurovision organizers have been “Come Together” (2016 in Stockholm), “Building Bridges” (2015 in Vienna) and “Join Us” (2014 in Copenhagen). The last German Grand Prix in 2011 had the motto “Feel Your Heart Beat” in Düsseldorf.Anyone who represents Germany at the Eurovision finals will determine the spectators in the preliminary decision on 9 February, which will be broadcast live in the first.
