International competition «Corporate talisman of WFYS 2017» started

Contest on a creation of the corporate talisman of the Festival of youth and students will last from February 17 to April 3. In the festival history of our country and in the memory of participants of WFYS-1985 has remained the image of blue-eyed and fair-haired smiling girl Katyusha holding a pigeon in her hands. Her images decorated Moscow in the Festival days, pins with her instantly disappeared from the shelves of souvenir shops, and foreign guests of the capital took with them Katyusha dolls to all corners of the world.

For example, during the preparation of the Olympic Games in Sochi, the Russians created a few dozen candidates for the title of the Olympic symbol, and as a result three of them became symbols: Polar Bear, Bunny and Leopard.
