The medals for the 15th edition of the Summer European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) were unveiled during a Chefs de Mission Seminar for Baku 2019.
Baku 2019 Chief of Staff Nikki Efendi presented the set of gold, silver and bronze medals, which were designed by the local organising committee and produced by Azersuvenir Ltd., a manufacturer of state insignia, medals, breastplates and badges.
The fire and ‘buta’ (ancient Azeri paisley pattern) design on the obverse side of the medals reflects the heritage and culture of Baku and also features the city’s iconic Flame Towers and Heydar Aliyev Center. The European Olympic Committees (EOC) logo is featured on the reverse side of the medals.
There will be 135 medal events at Baku 2019, with a total of 298 sets of medals being awarded. The EYOF will feature seven days of competition in 10 sports at 12 competition venues. Some 3,600 athletes and team officials are expected to take part in Baku 2019, assisted by 2,500 volunteers. The EYOF is the leading European multi-sport event for young athletes aged 14 to 18 and will run from 21-27 July in the Azerbaijani capital.
