Games philosophy

Athletes come first

This principle is central to the organisation of the tournament at all levels, from its motivating ideals to its logistics.

For participants

Games symbols

The Games' visual identity is characterised by a modern, dynamic design based on Bauhaus-inspired imagery. This style is characterised by the use of simple geometric shapes, bold graphic elements and vibrant colours, which express energy and individualism and convey positive emotions to both viewers and participants.

The World Friendship Games logo symbolises unity and friendship between different countries and cultures. It embodies the idea of sports competition as a means of bringing people together in a world where borders and differences give way to cooperation and respect.
