Thinking out of the box – also helps with innovative flag mountings
An absolute must for a Champions League Final: the so-called protocol flags. These comprise seven flags: one each with the club logo of the two finalists, one with the key visual of the venue and the UEFA, two with the Champions League trophy and one flag with the slogan “Respect“. The flags should be hung in a prominent location and visible from every angle. There were already various possible solutions for the flag mountings in the Allianz Arena – for example, how it was done for the World Cup in 2006. However, none of these had proven its worth – neither technically nor visually.
Companeer developed an innovative solution to the problem which enabled the flags to be attached to the supporting structure of the roof, but still absolutely independent of the other constructions. The design was agreed with the stadium operators, the fire prevention department, a structural engineer and lastly with the UEFA. Using the planning basis provided by Companeer, a specialist then worked out the detail and construction plans, and coordinated and planned the technical implementation. Finally, the construction for the flags was manufactured and installed on the roof by a company which specializes in event equipment. Companeer took over on the schedule coordination and supervised the workmanship.
