The Israeli government is moving ahead with ambitious preparations for U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Israel in March. 

Following an online vote, the government revealed the official logo to be used on all official signs, documents and pamphlets pertaining to the visit. 

The logo combines the Israeli and US flags, features both Hebrew and English with the words "Unbreakable Alliance" and "President Obama in Israel 2013" and was selected from among three logos designed by graphic artists chosen by the Government Advertising Agency.

The winning logo received 66.8% of the thousands of votes.
