Fosse Foxes Logo


By Bhavna Mapara

This fox’s design is influenced by the diverse cultures of Leicester – rich in vibrancy, unity and celebration. Its features take inspiration from the vivacious Indian festivals of Holi (festival of colour) and Diwali (festival of light), together with the intricate art forms of mandala and rangoli. Lila’s patterns are harmonious and symbolic in nature, akin to our iconic multicultural city.
