Tokyo 2020 Olympics: New logo for the event unveiled
Japanese designer Asao Tokolo was tasked with he new emblem after the old one drew controversy.
The new emblem of Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games was unveiled here on Monday, featuring an indigo-coloured check in the design.
The logo features a circular Japanese traditional checkered pattern. Below the design are the words "Tokyo 2020" and under them the five interlocking Olympic rings, reports Xinhua.
The logo was chosen from a shortlist of four announced on April 8 after more than 14,599 entries were publicly accepted.
Tokyo 2020 organisers had to scrap a logo by Japanese designer Kenjiro Sano over its close resemblance of a theater in the Belgian city of Liege created by designer Olivier Debie.
