The Symbology Behind The Visual Identity
The inspiration for creating the visual identity came from what was once a citadel, The Timisoara Citadel (Castrum Timensiensis), a historic fortress that became the present town of Timisoara. During the Turkish occupation, Timisoara was divided into three parts: the citadel, the town and the suburbs. The town was surrounded by a wall with high palisades made of clay wattle, after which followed a row of deep trenches, fed by the water of the Timiş River. The modern citadel of Timisoara, that was much bigger, was built between the years of 1723-1765, after the occupation of the Austrian empire’s imperial army. The foundation stone was laid in April 25, 1723 in the presence of the city’s Public Figures, under the leadership of Governor Mercy. Later, a new line of fortifications, Vauban style, were build to reinforce the defense of the city.
