See the new logo for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games
Tokyo 2020 unveiled its new official emblem for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Monday, after the original logo sparked a plagiarism controversy.
The organizers shortlisted four sets of logos earlier this month, and with the help of thousands of votes from the public, opted for a design created by Japanese artist Asao Tokolo.
Tokolo’s emblems beat out the three other sets of designs that up for consideration, out of the more than 14,000 submitted.
Designer Kenjiro Sano was accused of plagiarism by a Belgian artist last year over his original logo for the games, which looked strikingly similar to the logo used by Theatre de Liege.
