Vatican City – Unveiled logo and motto of the Apostolic Journey of Pope Francis to Hungary. The three-day Budapest event is Pope Bergoglio’s 41st trip abroad.
The central element of the logo is the Budapest Chain Bridge, Hungary’s oldest bridge crossing the Danube. Symbol of the capital and of the country, it was originally built to connect the cities of Buda and Pest. It wants to recall the thought, repeatedly mentioned by the Holy Father, of the importance of building bridges between men.
The colors of the Holy See (yellow and white) and the Hungarian national ones (red, white and green) meet on the two piers of the bridge. The logo is delimited by a circle which symbolizes the Eucharist, but also the world redeemed by Christ.
On the left side of the circle, a cross recalls the speech given by Pope Francis on 12 September 2021 in Budapest, in which he hoped that the cross would become a bridge between the past and the future. On the right side of the circle the motto: Christ is our future and Pope Francis in Hungary 28-30 April 2023.
