|The 2009 UEFA Women's Championship, or just Women's Euro 2009, is being played in Finland between August 23 and September 10, 2009. Twelve teams compete in the competition, increase of 4 teams from 8 teams that played in previous tournaments. The logo of the championship was unveiled in Feb 2008 and is shown alongside. The logo, which is a mix of bright yellow and orange is in the shape of a person with the head shaped as a ball. The colour palette usage, from light yellow to dark orange, encompasses passion, pride and a sense of a new dawn within the competition. At the same time, the heritage and prestigious past of this tournament is maintained via the use of the distinctive UEFA arch. Beneath the main graphic element and the tournament wording, the host country staging the finals is also referenced, in this case "FINLAND 2009".|
The logo was created by The Works, the United Kingdom-based design and branding agency. UEFA also said that future UEFA European Women's Championship final rounds will utilise the same logo, although each time with a personalised brand design highlighting the features of the hosts.
