TOKYO (AP) — A ring of interconnected indigo blue rectangular shapes is the new symbol of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Opting for simplicity and harmony, organizers unveiled the new official logo on Monday, seven months after an initial design was scrapped over allegations of plagiarism.
The winning logo, by Japanese designer Asao Tokolo, is entitled Harmonized Checkered Emblem. It features three varieties of indigo blue rectangular shapes to represent different countries, cultures and ways of thinking.
"My mind has gone blank as I just found out my design won," Tokolo said. "I put a lot of time and effort into this design as though it was my own child."
