What is the yellow and black symbol on Marcel Hirscher's helmet?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi everyone.

I'm new here so a big HELLO to all. Smile

I'm new'ish to Alpine skiing so please go easy on me. Thx. Smile


I've been meaning to ask this for some time now. On the front of Marcel Hirscher's helmet is a Yellow square with a black X on it. I know it's not just an X. The whole thing is a symbol and one I've seen before but I can't remember what it represents. Something Austrian I guess but what?

Big congrats to him today too, a great comeback from injury.

So what's the symbol anyone?

Many thanks in advance.

Andrew. Smile

Ah ha. I was searching Austrian coats of arms, flags and other Austrian symbols. Didn't think to search Kirscher's sponsership.

Thanks for the superfast replies, appreciated. Smile

Brings me happy memories. Drove a former Raifeisen van from Vienna to Salzburg with rather a lot of wood in the back (probably more than you're meant to) and it wasn't the most stable machine before the wood went in. And only half the stereo worked. Happy memories of road trips through amazing scenery.

Ha - same! The marketing definitely works though. When I moved here and need to open an account Raiffeisen was the first I thought of, principally 'cos as kids my sister a yellow ski helmet with Raifeissen logos and Herman Maier's signature on it Laughing

It used to amaze me that small villages in Austria have bank branches while banks are still closing branches in even moderate sized towns in the UK. But when you think about all the businesses in Austria (and Germany) who only accept cash, they must still have to do a daily bank run. Those banks in ski resorts must have ridiculous amounts of cash sitting in them come Monday evening.

@hammerite, remember that banks here are also estate agents and a whole host of other things. The high street is still alive and well in Austria. Buying online is all well and good as long as you can get things delivered. Not so easy here as delivery services work office hours and often not Saturdays. Most shops shut at midday on Saturday and do not reopen until Monday. Some of the shopping centres have 'late night shopping' for Christmas which means closing at 7pm rather than 6pm. The UK 24-hour culture has not happened here.

 You know it makes sense.

@queen bodecia, yes I did think about the estate agent thing too. But think of all that cash!
