The Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 has unveiled its new emblem. It was revealed following an innovative launch ceremony, which saw over 700 runners – led by including Renaud Lavillenie, Nantenin Keita and Sarah Ourahmoune. The athletes ran through different parts of Paris and Seine-Saint-Denis, depicting the outline of the new emblem.
The new design brings together three iconic symbols connected to sport, the Games and France – the gold medal, the Olympic and Paralympic flames, and Marianne.
The emblem embraces the shape and colour of the most beautiful medal of all to express one of the core values of sport: striving for excellence. That same commitment also informs every step that Paris 2024 is taking in organising the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, so that it can fulfil the pledges it has made to stage a different, grounded, sustainable and inclusive Games.
