Somewhat overshadowed by the controversy surrounding the withdrawn logo for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the bidding is ongoing to find the host of the 2024 Summer Olympics. Four candidates are currently active, and this week Rome became the first of these to present its candidate city logo.
The logo was revealed during a long ceremony and depicts a version the Colosseum in the colours of the Italian flag.
Rome last attempted a bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics but had to withdraw following the euro crisis. It did release its bid logo afterwards and it featured a different take on the Colosseum.
In other Olympic bid logo news, Hamburg was selected as the fifth candidate city for the 2024 games, but had to withdraw following a binding referendum. German newspaper Bild recently published what was to have been its bid logo, designed pro bono by local design agency Mutabor.
