The Chic 2024 Summer Olympics Logo

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 23, 2019

On Oct 21, the emblem for the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics was unveiled in Paris, site of the Games. It features a round symbol that represents a gold medal, the Olympic flame, and Marianne, the “national personification of the French Republic since the French Revolution”.

The emblem’s Marianne is quite chic, so Parisian freelance journalist Megan Clement concocted a vignette of that young woman’s life. It begins like so:

The French Olympic logo tumbles out of bed on a Parisian morning. She tousles her messy bob, dons breton stripes and ballet flats and whisks down the stairs from her fifth-floor apartment to grab a baguette before enigmatically texting two men who are pursuing her romantically.

The French Olympic logo has an expresso and a cigarette for lunch.
