  1. Here we go.. with the first entrance for highland african country of Kenya..

    the logo symbolises a big letter N , the initial of capital city

    patterend in a quadratic square with the 3 main colours of the national flag 

    the diagonal lines refere also to the coat of arms on the kenyan tricolore

    this symmetric-concept gives an anfrican-art-taste to the logo itself

    using a very modern font to indicate a fast evoluating technological/cyber world AND 

    forming cleverly the word AIR with the 2nd + 3rd + 4th letters of the capital name

    this last includes/contains a capital on the east-african-highlands about 1.700 m above sealevel

    this is also the level whereby the most medals in history are won by kenyan atlethes at long distance running

    with all this precious information makes the country a proud host on african soil.. 

    the little extention (drawn as fhe same font-letter-"O") in the right-upper corner.. encompasses the intention to reach high, higher, highest..

    the Kenyan highlands are inviting the olympic passion in the land of the proud and succesfull long-distance-runners ..

  4. Phryge | Phrygia ^_^;)

    >> in/direct new information from turkish soil

    source: Phrygians - Wikipedia

    The Phrygians (Greek: Φρύγες, Phruges or Phryges) were an ancient Indo-European speaking people, who inhabited central-western Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) in antiquity. They were related to the Greeks.[1]

    Ancient Greek authors used "Phrygian" as an umbrella term to describe a vast ethno-cultural complex located mainly in the central areas of Anatolia rather than a name of a single "tribe" or "people", and its ethno-linguistic homogeneity is debatable.[2] Phrygians were initially dwelling in the southern Balkans – according to Herodotus – under the name of Bryges (Briges), changing it to Phryges after their final migration to Anatolia, via the Hellespont. However, the Balkan origins of the Phrygians are debated by modern scholars.[3][4]

    Phrygia developed an advanced Bronze Age culture. The earliest traditions of Greek music are in part connected to Phrygian music, transmitted through the Greek colonies in Anatolia, especially the Phrygian mode, which was considered to be the warlike mode in ancient Greek music. Phrygian Midas, the king of the "golden touch", was tutored in music by Orpheus himself, according to the myth. Another musical invention that came from Phrygia was the aulos, a reed instrument with two pipes.

    In classical Greek iconography Paris, a Trojan, is represented as non-Greek by his Phrygian cap, which was also worn by Mithras and survived into modern imagery as the "Liberty cap" of the American and French revolutionaries.

    Phrygians spoke the Phrygian language, a member of the Indo-European linguistic family. Modern consensus regards Greek as its closest relative

    One thing struck me - these mascots DO have a purpose beyond being just plushies. They actually could be worn, and I expect we may see them on spectators’ heads come games time. In which case, they may be a bit more visible than the average stuffed toy. 

    do you remember the vuvuzela at the world cup 2010 in south africa? it was a fad/rage/trend gone wrong with a lot of hatred for that instrument.. i hope that the same doesnt happen with this red-cock/comb-thing all red-coloured stands at the sports venues.. 

    2024 is nothing elss than 2 things.. 1// the logo referee to the french revolution 2// the mascot musnt be an animal thus to break this trend and do solething innovative.. (in this context was izzy mich more approchable as a character.. it just doesn make sense as yoh get the answer 'is not an animal' but the first impression as a cock-comb is directly linked with an animal.. so at the end we have a product here, but i think (have the feeling)  that there will be also blue version of this when medal ceremonies are held.. at rio it was so simple and beautiful to reach out the curving-logo as a bibelot so much organic-and-modest.. (seen apart from vinicous)

    paris 2024 goes about the SO MUCH NEEDED french-pride after a brexit and decreasing german-politics on the european continent.. 'centenaire en français' regering to 1924.. the symbolism doesnt stop but is also produces a lot arrogantism, sorry as the french arrogance can be.

    finally the one/only good thing of this mascot is maybe that it looks like a HEART when you look upside down.. so they can make a decent link; that the olympians are in the heart of the olympics AND in de heart of paris as it will be the most inclusion-olympics of the new millenium
