The logo of the 17th edition of the Small States Games was chosen among the over 150 graphic designs that were delivered for the “Create the San Marino 2017” logo. Stefania Borasca, enrolled at the Laurea in Design of the University of the Republic of San Marino, and Matteo Sammarini, graduated in engineering in Bologna. The work has struck for its ability to convey in a simple and direct way the bond with the Republic of San Marino and its distinctive features, but also for its appeal to the sporting competition. The subject, in fact, is a blue flame that combines a dual symbolism: that of freedom, as the founding value of the state of San Marino, and that of sporting spirit. The color resembles the colors of the white-blue flag. The flame comes from a stylized tripod that recalls the colors of the five Olympic circles, while the upper part is an obvious reference to the mountain and the three towers of San Marino.
