Nearly 30 years after the Goldflower banner logo, Switzerland Tourism has unveiled a new logo. The new identity has Switzerland for the first time adopting a comprehensive tourism brand with "Switzerland". Switzerland Tourism presented the new logo in Geneva and is now taking the new image out into the world. The new, digital and modern brand world stands for Switzerland's long-standing tourism promise: nature, hospitality and reliability.

Switzerland is on every Indian's bucket list

In 1995, the venerable “Swiss Transport Center SVZ” became today’s national tourism marketing organization Switzerland Tourism. At the same time, the common image of tourism in Switzerland was created under the umbrella of a new logo, the “Gold Flower”.

This gold flower had become the well-known and popular symbol for Swiss tourism advertising. The current logo was not just used by Switzerland Tourism, but also industry organizations, destinations and service providers, which promoted Switzerland's tourism offerings with the same logo.

Few countries can match the natural beauty of Switzerland

The gold flower has accompanied an entire generation and is now associated with tourism in Switzerland by the Swiss population and many guests. “Switzerland” – a sharpened brand Today, almost 30 years later, the requirements for a brand are completely different than they were in the 1990s. Switzerland Tourism has therefore decided to create a new, unique and recognizable digital Swiss brand worldG. For the first time in the history of Swiss tourism advertising, a pure logo is now becoming a complete brand world, a statement ny Switzerland Tourism said.

The logo of Switzerland Tourism has been changed after 30 years

In the future, Swiss tourism promotion will not only promote the destination, but will also accompany tourists on their entire journey, from inspiration to travel planning. “Switzerland” – exclusively in English – is the logical basis for the brand of Switzerland as a holiday and travel destination, and stands for the global tourism promise to all guests of Switzerland about nature, our hospitality and the reliability of Switzerland as a travel destination.

Instead of the letter T, a Swiss cross in the “Switzerland” brand symbolizes the trustworthy origins and radiates the optimism of the Swiss destination. But the symbolic cross goes far beyond just a national flag: it was expanded and given a so-called “color tone” of five different shades of red, a symbol of modernity, diversity and independence. Brand for the entire tourism sector in Switzerland - for a new generation The idea from the founding days of the Goldflower is proudly carried forward and perfected. “Switzerland” stands for all hosts in Switzerland. In this sense, ST enables its members and partners to provide orientation and create trust. The new, comprehensive brand world offers countless possibilities on all channels, now and in the future.

Switzerland is also a great winter tourism destination

The new brand will be designed and implemented gradually worldwide with immediate effect - both in all Switzerland Tourism markets and across the entire tourism industry. The complete transition to the new brand world is likely to take a few months. Martin Nydegger, Director ST, is pleased: “The Gold Flower defined an era for a generation of tourism professionals. The Switzerland brand conveys trust, has a modern design and is forward-looking for another generation. The new tourism brand is being closely watched throughout Switzerland and will represent Switzerland far beyond tourism, including internationally.

The new logo has been designed keeping digital communication in mind

The new brand identity was developed together with the Zurich branding agency MADE Identity. When developing “Switzerland”, MADE focuses on three main areas. On the one hand, the brand should become more visible and noticeable internationally through a consistent one-brand strategy. In addition, the brand should have maximum impact digitally, tactilely and spatially. And finally, “Switzerland” as a brand should be able to accompany guests through the travel experience: from advertising, to the experience, to the souvenir.
