The official emblem for FIFA World Cup 2022, has been unveiled in the capital of Qatar, Doha. The 2022 World Cup, which will be hosted by the Gulf emirate, was displayed at public spaces in Doha and some cities around the world on Tuesday, Al Jazeera reports.
The design is an Arabic white unisex shawl with maroon patterning, which is displayed in a figure-of-eight symbolizing infinity, while creating a heart shape above the words “FIFA WORLD CUP Qatar 2022”.
