Four Potential Logo Designs Revealed for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

tokyo2020-olympics

The Emblems Selection Committee have revealed four sets of potential logos for the 2020 Olympics, and Paralympic Games, in Tokyo. You may recall the plagiarism controversy last year regarding the original logo designed by Kenjiro Sano. Amid allegations that Sano copied Belgian designer Olivier Debie, the committee axed Sano’s design. The committee then launched a public design competition to find an appropriate replacement, and it appears the final decision is close.

The designs are being kept anonymous at this point as the public is now invited to share their opinions and vote for their favourite design. Have a look at all the final logo designs below!
