The next version is dated the 1980th year. She is radically different from her predecessor. Firstly, a strict style. Secondly, brevity. There are no unnecessary details on it – only a stylized image of a feathered predator. The drawing is done with medium-wide orange lines.

The actual logo contains two parts: text and graphic. It represents the abbreviation “BG,” connected in the form of a monogram, because of which a formidable peregrine Falcon peeps. It consists of different-format brown-orange stripes. The letters have sharp serifs at the ends, resembling a beak and claws.
