The British golfer Sir Nick Faldo has had a new logo designed. Ten years after he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2009, the new logo and website have now been introduced.
The shield in the new logo is intended to represent the heritage, knighthood and symbol of a champion, while the stripes represent Sir Nick Faldo’s six Major Championship victories in order of appearance. The burgundy stripes represent the Open Championship victories in 1987, 1990 and 1992, with green representing Faldo’s Masters victories in 1989, 1990 and 1996.
Golf fans will be the first to see the new logo used throughout the branding for the Faldo Series, which was created by Sir Nick after his last appearance. Currently across Europe, Asia and America, with 40 events in 30 countries worldwide each year, the series supports Sir Nick’s vision of giving young people opportunities through golf, and over 40,000 boys and girls have participated in the competition since its inception.
The launch coincided with the Grand Final of the Faldo Series in Europe, which was held at the Al Ain Equestrian. Sir Nick takes part in every Grand Final of the Faldo Series.
“For me the new logo is also a celebration – it’s been 10 years since I was awarded my knighthood, we have the 23rd edition of the Faldo Series Europe Grand Final and some exciting golf course designs,” said Nick Faldo.
