The UEFA Nations League trophy and competition anthem have been unveiled at the 2018/19 League Phase draw in Lausanne.
The trophy was revealed on stage by UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin just prior to the draw. It has been inspired by the UEFA Nations League logo, a first for a UEFA competition.
UEFA Nations League Anthem
The flag that represents all 55 UEFA national associations competing within the promotion/relegation format is elegantly wrapped around a flag pole. The trophy is entirely made of sterling silver that on the inside carries the competition colours. The reflection of these colours on the silver surface is one of the characteristics that make this trophy unique.
“The first thing we wanted was for people to start thinking what this trophy represented – the pinnacle of a nation, the raising of a flag,” said Hélder Pombinho, creative director of the brand agency responsible for the trophy. “When we see this trophy being raised, that’s what we imagine, as if we were watching the flags of all the nations being raised, as the high point of winning this tournament.”
