The pomegranate, a symbol of unity in Azerbaijani folklore, is also central to the visual identity of the European Games. ‘Believe in Extraordinary’ encapsulates what drives Team GB athletes, how the nation is moved by the power of their achievements and represents a motto to inspire us all to believe that we too can achieve our personal best.
