January 30th 2015: Condor announced a new livery “Three new colours are at the core of the new company identity – dark blue, pink and gold, representing more of a leisure and holiday outlook. The ribbons – which were a distinctive feature in the ship’s livery before – have evolved and will be used on the ships hulls as well as on new branding throughout the rest of the company, including the new logo.”
