At last – Tokyo 2020 has a logo again

At last – Tokyo 2020 has a logo again

The wait is finally over and no, we don't mean for season 6 of 'Game of Thrones' (though we're pretty excited for that too). After a plagiarism scandal saw the initial logo scrapped, the organising committee for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics launched an open competition last November and announced four finalists earlier this month, singled out from amongst 14,599 entries. Though we'll never know if the committee heeded our feedback regarding the finalists, we now have a winner. Asao Tokolo's modernist design pays homage to the famous chequered pattern 'ichimatsu moyo', made famous during the Edo period, and utilises the traditional Japanese colour of indigo blue. According to the press release on the 2020 website, the three different rectangles constituting the design represent the diversity of the nations and continents represented in the Olympics. What do you think of the decision? Yay or nay? Let your voice be heard below.
