The Gujarat-based team launched its team logo on Spatial.io’s metaverse. With this, the new IPL franchise becomes the first team in India to establish its own virtual space. The logo was unveiled by the team’s head coach – Ashish Nehra, captain – Hardik Pandya, and batsman – Shubman Gill, who interacted for the first time in the Titans Dugout in the metaverse.
The logo depicts an apex, which represents the spirit of the ‘Titans,’ who strive to move upward and beyond to achieve higher goals. It represents the team’s desire to reach the ‘pinnacle’ of success in the upcoming IPL season.
The much-anticipated team logo is inspired by the shape of a ‘Kite’ flying high in the sky, reflecting the team’s desire to scale new horizons of limitless possibilities. As kite-flying is an important part of Gujarat’s cultural heritage, with festivals such as the Uttarayan, the logo reflects the state’s rich cultural heritage and legacy, on which the team’s foundation is built.
“As kite-flying is an integral part of Gujarat’s cultural heritage with festivities like Uttarayan festival, the logo reflects the rich cultural heritage and legacy of the state, basis upon which the team’s foundation is built upon,” the press release said.
The logo also includes a ‘bolt of lightning,’ which represents the sheer energy and immense power to illuminate even the darkest of skies in a split second, and will represent the team’s determination to turn adversity into triumph.
