Esports News – Overwatch League expansion team Paris unveils the team’s logo and branding. They will be joining the OWL 2019 on February as “Paris Eternal”, and will play alongside other expansion teams from Chengdu, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Washington, and Vancouver.
“Paris Eternal” will represent France and the entire European continent in the Overwatch League. The team is owned by Drew McCourt, the president of McCourt Global company and the owner of DM Esports and Olympique de Marseille football club. Recently, the team has applied for a trademark for their name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), one of the few esports teams to do so.
Logo and branding
“Paris Eternal” announced their logo and branding through a 42-second promotion video on their official Twitter page, @ParisEternal. The video boasts off all the colors representing the French flag. The logo was shown in the end. It’s inspired by the infinity symbol and the Gallic Rooster, one of the national symbols of France as a nation and has been associated with revolution. The name “Eternal”, on the other hand, was rooted from the Arc de Triomphe’s “eternal flame”, one of the famous monuments in Paris that dates back to World War I.
All in all, it shows that the branding of Paris Eternal represents everything that the region stands for, most especially bravery and victory. Also included in the announcement are the official skins of the teams, worn by Doomfist and Widowmaker were used to show off the team’s skins.
