The Phoenicians’ Route brand synthesizes some of the fundamental elements of the Itinerary. The final result is a stylized vessel, symbol of the Phoenicians’ seafaring skill. It’s formed by a keel (lower part) that reproduces the nautical path that brought the Phoenicians to new lands and populations across the Mediterranean. The tip is the word “R” of the Phoenician alphabet, origin of all the alphabets and initial of “Route”. The blue line that covers the floating part, symbolizes the Mediterranean Sea, cradle of many civilizations included the Phoenician one. The protector eye in the prow is a stylized tuna, a very important fish for the Mediterranean and the Phoenicians too. Finally there’s the lug, fundamental to face wide trips, under the guide of the Ursa Minor and the Polaris, significantly called by Greeks Phoenician star.
