Thanks for the history lesson Nate. I didn't realize that the Soviet Union made it to 3 of the first 4 euro cup finals. Or at least that's what I think I learned. It's kinda hard to tell with some of the icons being flags and some being team colors. U.S.S.R. and Turkey are virtually indistinguishable. Maybe a simple label next to to the icons would make this info graphic more accessible. Keep up the good work.-aj
One of my main goals with this was to do it without words – hence, no key, no labels, just icons (almost all with flags).The only two countries not denoted by flags are the two known by colors which don't appear in the flag: the Oranje and the Azzurri. Well, Greece too, I guess, but that's just because there wasn't room for the sort of detail that goes into the Greek flag.My hope was a darker shade of crimson would do enough to differentiate between USSR and Turkey, but I understand that not coming across; I did worry about that when creating these. So I went back and added Turkey's star and crescent. Initially wanted to avoid that sort of fine detail, but I guess it's unavoidable with so many countries.Hope that helps. Thanks for the notes.
1992 remains awesome. First football tournament I paid proper attention to; was not disappointed.Gonna go look up some Laudrup vids now in fact.
you could add the white cross on blue square to the left of greek flag, that's a simple yet prominent feature
