    Under

    A usage of the preposition "under" is confusing me:

    ( thestar.com.my/Sport/Football/2014/03/04/Ukraine-cancels-friendly-against-US/ )
    "Ukraine's soccer friendly against the United States on Wednesday in Cyprus will be played under the slogan "Peace for Ukraine!," the Football Federation of Ukraine said on its website on Tuesday."

    I understand "a game played under new rules" but not "a game played under some slogan". Could the example be poorly written?
