Indonesia avoids IOC ban over five rings logo dispute

Jakarta, Indonesia: The Indonesian sports agency whose violation of an Olympic trademark almost cost the country its hosting of the 2018 Asian Games has decided to back down from its stance, reports the Jakarta Globe.
The Indonesian National Sports Committee, or KONI, decided earlier this week to end its use of the International Olympic Committee’s five rings in its logo, said KONI chairman Tono Suratman.
“Our members have recommended [dropping the rings] and we’ve picked a few candidates to help design the new logo,” Tono said.
“It could be three rings or six rings, as long as it’s not the IOC logo. The colours can be different but the shape stays the same, or the other way around,” he said.
“The most important thing is we’re still committed helping boost the country’s sports development.”
The move comes after a court in Jakarta last month ordered the KONI to cease its illegal use of the Olympic logo.
Only the Indonesian Olympic Committee, or KOI, as Indonesia’s IOC-affiliated National Olympic Committee, is allowed to use the rings or any other Olympic symbols in its logo — but KONI has insisted on using the logo since 2013.
In a letter to President Joko Widodo dated Jan. 27, the IOC even warned that KONI’s continued illegal use of the Olympic rings logo could cost Indonesia its role in any IOC-sanctioned event, including the 2018 Asian Games, set to be hosted in Jakarta.
The Sports Ministry, which threatened to freeze funding for the KONI after its repeated refusals to stop using the logo, welcomed the about-face, which was announced at the committee’s annual congress in Jakarta.
“We appreciate and thank the KONI for finally deciding to change its logo after this long debate,” said ministry spokesman Gatot S. Dewa Broto.
He added that Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi had sent a letter to IOC President Thomas Bach informing him of the latest development in hopes of heading off any sanctions related to the copyright infringement.

Finally I can join this forum too... Hi everyone, I'm Andreas Evando Priyanto from Lampung, Indonesia... With zigzag (I kknow him also in SkyscraperCity Forum), wanna tell you more about XVI

I highly doubt the OCA will move the Games to 2018 to suit an Indonesian election after spending a lot of time changing the hosting years. I'm calling BS.

Asiad 2018 is on the move!! Indonesians has got the allowance to independently host the broadcasting for Asiad 2018 even though they still has to pay 30 million dollars to OCA as written in the h

Finally this whole silly drama about the rings is over. Hopefully we'll have more news about the actual games now.

That reminds me...did they ever end up releasing the logo? I know it was delayed because of what happened earlier this year but there's no excuse anymore.

Actually the drama still continues in Indonesia as the Government is still not releasing the President's Permit which will outline the bases for the games although some news says it will launched last week but it turned wrong while in other side says it will be this month but i can't found any updates yet since the Government is still busy with other stuff including our football chaos happened recently.....

why need olympic ring in asian games logo?

The problem is actually because our sport federation has misunderstood about the usage of the Olympic Rings and use it for themselves not because of putting the Olympic Rings in the asiad logo besides the asiad logo will use the sun from the OCA logo and not the Olympic Rings.....

In fact, less than a month away there will be a meeting of the Olympic Council of Asia or the OCA Board Meeting, in Tehran, Iran and one of the agenda is to explain the legal basis for the games.

"We expect in the near future this decree is made as simple as possible, but helping organizers move forward. Pity the government and the President if there is a change," said Rita.


"If we late,we get less funds because we get less in sponsorship. Development of athlete village also will not be completed, because all development requires a period of time," said Rita.

The Asiad, The Decree, and The Ban

At long last, the decree needed for the hosting of the Asian Games 2018 is finally signed by the Indonesian President Joko Widodo.

The decree will be used to ensure that Indonesia will host the Asiad in 2018, however that decree might be useless due of the current football chaos in Indonesia.

Indonesia is soon to be banned from FIFA, because they think there is intervention from the government. If banned, the clubs, as well as the Indonesian national team at all levels of age, can not carry out the international game, both FIFA and all test matches.

Indonesia has been appointed to host the 2018 Asian Games to be held in Palembang and Jakarta. But Rita said the appointment could change if FIFA ban Indonesia, due to the conflict that continues to drag on.
According to Rita, based on talks with FIFA president Sepp Blatter in 2013 and resulting, the world football governing body will impose direct ban if the Indonesian football ruined again.
Meanwhile, in a statement after chairing a meeting of the executive committee (Exco) at FIFA headquarters in Zurich at the end of March 2013, Blatter said it would continue to monitor closely the situation in Indonesia.
"According to Sepp Blatter, this [conflict in 2013] the last, because they received complaints from other countries, because Indonesia had a chance without being directly penalized," said Rita.
"We should focus on to host the Asian Games. This should be a moment for the revival of sports Indonesia. Therefore, should be nothing that hinder its implementation. "
"Imagine if we banned that make us not able to play football when to host the Asian Games. Maybe there will be a request [from other countries] that the Asian Games is not hold in Indonesia, because it can not hold a football match. "

Where is the logo? Didn't they promised to release it on January before the airplane accident happened and had to delay it? I think more than enough time has passed since the mourning period.

Then why will they unveil a logo if the 2018 Games will NOT be played in Indonesia? I bet it will go to China or Korea again.

I think football is the only sport that will be relocated, but i also believe that when the ASIAD started the ban for Indonesian FA is already lifted, so no worries, the events will take place in Indonesia... My worry is,as a person who live in Jakarta, i don't see any preparation for the games, except the MRT thing, and the plan to build new swimming pool... i really don't see major upgrade in Jakarta.... the the road is still full of potholes... the traffic jam is getting worse, the air pollution still very bad, there is no improvement in the pedestrian... the mentality of the jakarta's people still like uneducated people.... oh God. how will Jakarta host it... it's really unimaginable....

This post proves that Asiad is not the event that appealing for Indonesians... for example we prefer the football euro rather then the olympics and motogp over f1 so knowing this Indonesia shall not waste time and money hosting something that is not even popular for Indonesians generally besides like i'm said in the 2019 asiad thread if Indonesia want a event that increase the national tourism popularity then Nusa Dua Bali should host the IOC Session instead because it's shorter, cheaper, more globally known, and we had more experience in this type of event so asiad 2018 will be nothing but a waste for the Indonesians...

When Jakarta won to be the the ASIAD host, i was very excited, because i hope this event could drag Jakarta to be a better city, i really hope the govt will force the Jakarta citizen to be more civilized, i hope Jakarta could be a world class city, like the neighbor Singapore, but up to now, in July 2015, there is no sucvh a thing, like i said, the govt seems doing nothing except for the MRT...

^^ Lol they said they would unveil it in February, then the airplane thing happened and it was delayed. Now its July and they are still making up excuses. These whole 2018 Asian Games have been a disaster in planification from both sides (Indonesia and OCA) so far. In fact I fear we might see a switch of host city very soon at this pace.

I'm really hope the OCA could dump the asiad from Indonesia and let the games hosted by a better city and nation however there is the rumour that the logo will be launched in August 4th and the media here is busy telling that the bird of paradise will be the mascot so we should wait for the official release...
