They should teach Susan Susanti to light a cauldron properly. :lol:

They don't need to do it since currently the plan is to have the ceremonies held in Gelora Bung Karno Stadium and if you look at this picture...

Some Spoilers About The Launch Here....
The Mascot will be the bird of paradise
While The Logo will be based to the number "18" marking the 18th edition of the games.
The Logo will have many variations in terms of design and colors in the number with a layer in the 8 which refers to the Indonesian unity in diversity.
The Flame which represents the never ending spirit from all the Indonesian athletes and people.
and The Torch that comes from the National Monument (Monas) that keep on burning through the times.
I don't know if these leaks are true or false, but if it is true... It's somehow remind me of this...

Oh, I now see why Indonesia has insisted on hosting them in 2018. Not because of the elections but because "18th" Asian Games dovetails very neatly into 2018. That's why. It would look misaligned if it were 18th Asian Games in 2019. It's NOT that "election year" excuse.

The logo is inspired by Cendrawasih, the endemic bird from Papua, actually there is no long story behind the logo, it just to spread the Asian games to Indonesian, since the main host city is Jakarta, and the support cities are in Palembang, Bandung, and Banten provinces, all the locations are in West Indonesia, so they choose Cendrawasih as the representation from East Indonesia.

i don't think it's that bad. it'd probably get top 3 on a GB logo competition and lose to paul.

some people would like the star, some people wouldn't. "good job, danny," i would say, because danny would have designed that logo.

good job, danny!

The logo is not so bad, to be honest. But the typography is really uninspired. I hope they fix it later.

Also, what about the mascot?

They will launch the fixed logo alongside the mascot in a unknown day....

Anyway here is a closer look at the logo..

It doesn't say where the games actually are...odd.

It because the South Sumatra Governor wants to add Palembang in the logo, so he wants the host cities to be Jakarta - Palembang, but the AOC said only 1 city could be shown on the logo, now Indonesia wants to negotiate it... so it's silly thing actually

Wow, that's really shaky. So, are you saying that the logo and the Games are dependent on WHO the new President will be? Hasn't Indonesia learned? Like when they did GANEFO, the IOC banned them? Don't people listen?

First i'm not the one to say it our Minister of Sport and Youth said it... He said the logo above is temporary and we going to launch it with the President..

And the Indonesians are actually good listeners, the problem is some of them hear it but don't care about it...

That's why there's a popular proverb here that says "In through the right ear, Out through the left ear" ;)

Local Jakarta Parliament To Stop All Construction on Behalf of Asian Games


The House of Representatives of Jakarta to protests all the capital construction program that will be done next year on behalf of the 2018 Asian Games.


Criticism was leveled by Deputy Chairman of Parliament Mohamad Taufik to the head of the Department of Transportation Andrew Yansyah respond to the development plan for the light rapid transportation (LRT).


According to Taufik, who worked on the construction of the city administration is not merely for the sake of the success of the Asian Games. "It Always for the Asian Games. So this development to the people or the Asian Games?," he said in Kebon Sirih, Wednesday, September 16, 2015.


Previously, Andri Yansyah explained, one of the priority programs of the Department of Transportation in the coming year is the construction of the LRT. The project, said Andri Yansyah, targeted for completion prior to the Asian Games.


Taufik considers the reason for the sake of the development of the Asian Games was never in favor of the people. Therefore, the development is temporary. In the other hand, the money used to build the LRT project comes from the people. "The budget to build the LRT for Rp 65 trillion in seven corridors is enormous," he said.


Moreover, said Taufik, Jakarta income value is less than the funds needed to build the LRT project. Last year, the city revenue of Rp 32 trillion. "Cash flow is somewhat burdensome," said Taufik.


This criticism for a second time from Taufik to cancel the Asian Games. He has criticized changes of the function for athlete village that will be built in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, after the Asian Games ended. According to him, if the athlete village is converted into flats, it will trigger protests from residents.

IOC to sanction once Again, Jokowi Asked to Resolve Indonesian Sport Conflict


In the era of Imam Nahrawi sport conflict continue to occur. A row of noise was not resolved until today. From the start of organizational dualism (Table Tennis chairman Marzuki Ali vs Leader Oegroseno,Cycling chairman Rajasapta Oktohari vs counter-chairman JT Edmond Simorangkir,Equestarian EFI vs Eqina ) to FIFA sanctions against PSSI due of Imam Nahrawi's ban.


At the time Indonesia prepares for the 2018 Asian Games host, the conflict spread to the Indonesian Olympic Committee (KOI) after KOI Special Members Meeting at the Peninsula Hotel Jakarta, 28 September without any decision. Originally the meeting itself was held in preparation for the Congress KOI scheduled in Jakarta, October 31, 2015 with the election agenda for Chairman KOI period 2015-2019.


Protest already coloring KOI election with the rise of two election teams crawl. One led by Achmad Budiharto formed by KOI and another team headed by Thomas Lubis supported by Arise Doddy Iswandi claiming to be Chairman of the Member Group Coordinator from KOI. "We asked President Jokowi to stop this KOI conflict," said Acting Secretary General KOI, Hipni Hasan, as quoted by AFP. Hipni says, President Jokowi will act as Chairman of the Steering Committee for 2018 Asian Games.


According to Hipni, KOI must be the one to held the KOI Congress. " The Executive Committee and Chairman of KOI Rita Subowo's election team was valid and the other one is not legitimate. Likewise KOI Congress, "he said. Hifni also warns if the conflict continues KOI can be sanctioned from the IOC. "2018 Asian Games must be moved if the conflict continues," he said. Hipni claims that the legitimate KOI election team is opposed by Timbul Thomas Lubis. According to him, KOI election team was inconsistent with the law and the results of the Annual Member Meeting at Hotel Novotel, Bogor, this February.


"If there are candidates who want join in they must do it with us. If already listed by the Election Team KOI they must also on our list. If they did not sign up it can not be, the form will be illegal, "he said he warning of the threat of sanctions from IOC is also presented by former Chairman of KONI / KOI, Gumelar in Jakarta last week. "Enough with PSSI sanctioned by FIFA. Do not let KOI will be sanctioned by IOC because of the conflict. All parties must prioritize the interests of the nation, "he added. Previously, the Imam Nahrawi Affairs requested a response to the current conflict by only submit an appeal.


"There is already some parties asked the government to undertake decisive steps. Perhaps this is because it's the season to ask the government to take decisive steps. But I still recommend internal deliberations in advance for the good of all, later when you're sanctioned we take action, "he said. Separately, former Deputy Minister Junusul Hairy say this conflict need not happen if the Imam Nahrawi create a policy that all of his employees should not be involved in the management of the sports organization.


"Our Minister should ask his employees to leave the position in the sports organization and concentrate to work. How Indonesian Sports can advance if his employees involved in managing sports organizations in a central position. the Government works as a facilitator and regulator not an executor, "he said. So far there are four names that are ready to be nominated. Namely, KONI chairman Tono Surataman, secretary of the Ministry of Youth and Sports who is also Chairman of Indonesian Squash, Alfitra Salamm, Chairman of the Sports Committee of South Sumatra Muddai Madang, and former national badminton player ICUK SUGIARTO.

KOI conflicts threatened 2018 Asian Games


Conflicts that occur in the body of the Indonesian Olympic Committee (KOI) ahead of the Congress, October 31, jeopardize the implementation of the upcoming 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia. International Olympic Committee Membership (IOC) could be suspended. The road leading into 2018 is believed to be even more dangerous. 2018 Asian Games is held by our nation, not individuals or groups. Thus, all the people of Indonesia must unite for the success of the event.


At least it was a response from the elders of the Indonesian sports world, Gumelar are disappointed and concerned about the chaos that occurred at the Special Members Meeting and the KOI Special Congress at Menara Peninsula, in 28 September.


In fact, sport is the main legacy of friendship and a sense of justice. Not only that, also expressed disappointment when he heard chatter Agum some parties call "At least not Rita Subowo again" for KOI Chairman period 2015-2019. Called, it kills democratic rights upheld by Indonesians.


While, Indonesia is faced with the desire to host the Asian Games preparations with only two years into the games. But in reality, the preparations were invisible until now. Plus a national sports world crisis is keep growing by one at a time instead of actually been solved.


"Football is not finished, now we have more chaotic KOI. If the preparation has not been completed, the current chaos also can not be resolved, this obstacle will stop us towards the Asian Games. Secondly, if the physical preparation is not started from now also will make obstacles, not to mention our athletes development, not to mention the preparation of the venue, "Agum said in a written statement.


With the upcoming KOI congress, Agum expect the candidates to know what the actual function and duty for KOI. Anyone who later became Chairman of KOI, Agum who has served as Chairman of KONI 2003-2007 is hoping a figure that has a sporting spirit and understand the rules of the game in the sports world and has extensive international network.


According Agum, a powerful figure who has an international network with sport stakeholders in the world today is only Rita. If the 2018 Asian Games held without Rita, Indonesia would be in trouble. Moreover, if the candidates orientation became Chairman KOI is only to become the Chief Executive of the Asian Games 2018, or simply to have power and money alone.


"I can not imagine if the Congress later will fail. That means, the road to the Asian Games will be blocked. The worst, the sporting world would untrust Indonesia. Including the IOC would reconsider the appointment of Indonesia as the host of the Asian Games. If the October 31 congress deadlocks ,Indonesia must surrender to host the Asian Games 2018. It's a disgrace, "said Agum, who is also a former chairman of the PSSI (Indonesian Football).
