Israel unveils logo for Obama visit

Israel unveils logo for Obama visit State Of Isreal

Obama's visit to Israel gets a logo


It's official: Visitors to the Facebook page of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have chosen a logo for President Obama's visit to Israel next month.

The winner, above, got 2,600 "likes" beating out two others (below), which garnered 786 and 521, respectively.


Netayahu's office is promising a big social media push around the visit. So far, there has been much more publicity about the trip in Israel than there has been in the United States. The Israeli government last month even released a tentative schedule for the president, something the White House has declined to talk about at all.

The media in Israel, it seems, are taking the hubbub in stride, even jabbing a little fun at it.


"One government official deflected criticism that the logo idea was kitschy, saying there was a great deal of public enthusiasm in the visit, and this was one way of tapping into it," the Jerusalem Post reports. "He chuckled dismissively when asked if there would also be a soft drink sponsor."


Here are the second- and third-place logo designs:
