    Tokyo 2020 Torch

  7. .......it was a loooooong journey to get to this result, not really what I expected....thank you everyone who took time to vote!

I think I'll hold off on voting in the last round and see what happens. -paul
  8. ...here's some descriptions of my entries. MEXICO CITY 2032 - Primarily it's just a happy welcoming sun but the logo was also inspired by the iconic history and beautiful ancient culture of Mexico City. The logo is a nod to the Aztec god Huitzilopochtli, the deity of sun, war, and the patron of the city of Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City). In this context war is seen as a reference to competition and the sun is a universal symbol of life, vibrancy, strength, and summer. In his hand Huitzilopochtli wields Xiuhcoatl the spirit of the fire deity Xiuhtecuhtli in the form of a mythological serpent...an interestingly similar image to the iconic modern day Olympic flame and torch. Xiuhcoatl the fire serpent was a fun and fitting inspiration for my banners. - click image for full size view MUMBAI 2032 - A peacock feather inspired the logo. The Peacock is the national bird of India and has many references throughout Indian mythology and is a symbol of beauty, bravery, power, love and benevolence. The composition also references a lotus flower and 7 chakras. Color plays an important roll in India and has deep significance, transcending purely decorative values. GREEN In Maharashtra represents life and happiness, BLUE represents bravery, determination, and the ability to deal with difficult situations…all important principles in Olympism. click image for full size view

    Milano-Cortina 2026 - Website

    ...that's exactly what I keep thinking.
  10. ....oh gosh this is a long comp! I have some inspiration and look stuff to post if I make it to the next round.
  11. Stockholm-Åre 2026 bid chief Richard Brisius has a very difficult job, with low approval from citizens and lack of govt guarantees I guess the committee feels they know what is best for everyone. Is there a risk taking sides with the IOC and forcing a bid with so much opposition?
  12. Congratulation to LDC and a beautiful winning logo! Thanks to the member who took time to vote....especially those who supported my design! Also thank you yoshi (and rols) for an awesome job with the comp........i never planned to learn so much about Kazakhstan!
