MEET LAKI

As a model for this mascot, we chose a fallow deer. The name of the mascot is derived from the word Lane, and the name itself is a common nickname from the Serbian name Lazar. It also has an international connotation because it is pronounced the same as the English word for “happy”, which is often necessary in sports. It is a tame animal that is on the list of endangered species on the territory of Serbia, where there are about 2000 individuals left. This information has multiple symbolisms, and it is a great opportunity for additional education and spreading awareness about the need to protect this beautiful species. On the other hand, the fallow deer has all the characteristics of a complete athlete in terms of its characteristics. He is fast and agile, has a competitive spirit which, like all deer, shows by competing in horn fights where he shows his strength and skill. In addition to attacking, the horns also have a defensive purpose in cases of protection of their young, to which deer are very attached.
