...a little about my entry.

Buenos Aires is one of the great capitols of the world, a city with amazing history, culture and diversity.

The raised wing represents the condor, a bird common to Argentine. I took inspiration from 2 large bronze condors, which are part of the Monumento de los dos Congresos. This beautiful sculpture is the featured piece of the Plaza del Congreso, facing the imposing Congressional Palace. Eagles also appear on the cities flag and coat of arms. The blues recall the national colors and flag.

I also tried to capture a lyrical precision that would recall the movement or posture of athleticism or dance. This lets me tie in sports and Tango (a significant cultural heritage of Buenos Aires) without being literal.

Are there any other color combinations or variations for the Buenos Aires logo? I don't think a pure blue games would be very summer-y :P

Blue is the primary logo but here's some color variations and a BA collage I was using for color inspiration.

ALtho, Paul, "blue" represents Europe (in the Olympic "scheme" of things, if you will) and the oceans. "Argentina" is more blue-and-white like Greece, Uruguay and Israel. "Les blues" are the French and the Italians.

Now, if you included Evita Dancing the Tango in the logo; it would be PERFECT!! No quibbles from me!
