New logo: Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles

Yesterday, the government administration of the French community in Belgium unveiled a new logo as it is changing its name to Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles. The namechange from "French Community of Belgium" to "Federation Wallonia-Brussels" was announced earlier this year, causing protests from Flemish nationalists as the Belgian capital Brussels is shared between the French and Flemish communities.

The new logo consists of a stylized interpretation of the initials W and B in red, yellow and blue. The offical colours for Wallonia are yellow and red, while they are blue and yellow for Brussels. Within the logo, red and blue represents the two regions, while the yellow "hyphen" represents some sort of unity ("our solidarity and the strength of our commitment").

The previous logo included a rooster, a common symbol for Wallonia.
