It is scheduled to be held at the citizen's plaza beside the tokyo metropolitan assembly building.

IOC vice president, John Coates and IPC vice president, Andrew Parsons will attend.

Perhaps After the ceremony, it will be released on youtube.

I'll be free next Friday. I can go there to see the logo! :)B) At 東京都議会前の広場 ???

I found out today that Japan changed its flag in 1999. Maybe a similar update to the 1964 logo is all that's needed!

Wow- that is the most anally retentive thing ever! Gotta love Japan.

Why didn't we all notice the 'sun' was moved one percent to the left- we are slipping.

You've obviously never had to deal with the official rules that dictate how the Australian Coat of Arms are used in publications and websites - down to the millimetres that must separate the arms from any type etc etc. I imagine all countries are as much sticklers for how their national symbols are presented.

I have had a great deal of bureaucratic experience at the highest level of government, and am obsessively anal- but officially moving a national symbol 1/ 100th across a flag still takes the cake for me!

but there's also the shape. I think a centered circle would look nicer on a more squared flag, but that's just my opinion.

I think the Australian flag has had minor adjustments over the years, I believe as recently as the 1950s? The shade of navy and positioning of the stars varied a bit after federation .

:blink: ? Countdown event will be held in Yumenohiroba.(9:00 am-12:00pm) . Logo unveiling ceremony will be held in the evening. I'll make a phone call and ask Tokyo Metropolitan Government about it. :)

If you can get the time for the logo unveiling that would be great. If it's evening on the 24th it'll be the early morning that same day for me.

Already confirmed if the ceremony will be transmitted through a channel of you tube? Maybe the official channel of the Olympics?

Not live stream.

Here's link to official youtube channel of Tokyo Organising Committee.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4Iuxmq-D-4wun0w0c4pVAg

Maybe you can watch the video after tomorrow.

Isnt it being unveiled tomorrow????

That's obviously a piece of origami (and a beautiful graphic), what does it make when folded and assembled? The Hadid Stadium?

Haha.

Appears to be something from a young designer by the name of Lindsay Happ.
