The UEFA European Championship 2024 is underway, and the clever Easter eggs in the Euro 2024 logo may have you wondering how it compares to previous designs. Well, this is the place to find out because we've pick apart every Euro logo, from Euro 1960 right through to Euro 2024 in Germany.

Read on for the history of the Euros logo (also see our pick of the best sports logos).
