Designed by Claudio Santucci, of the Milan-based company Gio’Forma, the concept is that of origami, inspired by the triangle found in the logo of this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest logo. John McCullagh, the Creative Director states “It’s a very flexible and easy to use shape” adding that “the ancient art of Origami shows us how something simple can be transformed into something much more complex with just a little patience, practiced, and understanding. Our origami set is, therefore, the blank canvas on which the delegations can tell their story”.

At the event,  which will be featuring newcomers; Italy, Montenegro & Slovenia as well as returning countries; Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria & Cyprus, Malta will be represented by Federica Falzon and her entry “Diamonds” co-written by Elton Zarb, Matthew Mercieca, Federica Falzon and Gillian Attard.
