Euro 2012 mascots are Slavek and Slavko
UEFA presented the twin figures in the football kits of Poland and Ukraine last month but invited the public to choose their names.

Poland: The Euro 2012 mascots finally have names: Slavek and Slavko.

UEFA presented the twin figures in the football kits of Poland and Ukraine last month but invited the public to choose their names.

The European football association said on Saturday that voters overwhelmingly favored Slavek and Slavko over the other choices of Siemko and Strimko or Klemek and Ladko.

Slavek is decked out in Poland's white and red national colors and Slavko in Ukraine's blue and yellow. Each has a shock of hair in matching colors that sticks straight up.

Four cities in Poland and four in Ukraine are to host the championships. Slavek and Slavko are taking up the mantle of Trix and Flix, the mascots for the Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland.
