Tokyo, April 25 (IANS) The new emblem of Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games was unveiled here on Monday, featuring an indigo-coloured check in the design.
The logo features a circular Japanese traditional checkered pattern. Below the design are the words “Tokyo 2020” and under them the five interlocking Olympic rings, reports Xinhua.
The logo was chosen from a shortlist of four announced on April 8 after more than 14,599 entries were publicly accepted.
Tokyo 2020 organisers had to scrap a logo by Japanese designer Kenjiro Sano over its close resemblance of a theater in the Belgian city of Liege created by designer Olivier Debie.
