Cartan Logo April 2019

 

Hamilton, Bermuda—10 March 2020: The Bermuda Olympic Association (BOA) has announced the winner of its recent Team Bermuda Logo Competition.
The “Longtail Circle” logo submitted by Bermudian illustrator and graphic designer Frederick “Lee” Ingram received the largest number of votes among the shortlisted designs that were put to the public for their consideration, and was the inspiration for the final design revealed by the BOA at a special reception at the Bermuda National Gallery today.

On 14 January 2020, the BOA invited submissions from Bermudian graphic designers, both professionals and students, based locally and overseas. A total of 82 designs were received from 39 designers. Five designs were shortlisted and displayed online and at the Bermuda National Gallery during the middle two weeks of February, giving the public the opportunity to review the designs and vote for their favourite.
Mr. Ingram’s design, which features a longtail drawn in the national team colours of deep blue and Bermuda pink, encircling “Team Bermuda” text and Olympic Rings received just over 30% of the nearly 1,600 votes cast.
The winning design was submitted to the International Olympic Committee, which reviewed it and tweaked it slightly for conformance with IOC brand standards. The final design will be used as a commercial logo to complement the official National Olympic Committee emblem, appearing on BOA sponsorship materials, and on athletes’ non-competition and non-ceremonial kit at major international sports festivals.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board (EB) today expressed its full commitment to the success of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, taking place from 24 July to 9 August 2020. 

The IOC EB heard a report on all the measures taken so far to address the coronavirus situation, which was followed by a comprehensive discussion.

A joint task force had already been created in mid-February, involving the IOC, Tokyo 2020, the host city of Tokyo, the government of Japan and the World Health Organization (WHO). The IOC EB appreciates and supports the measures being taken, which constitute an important part of Tokyo’s plans to host safe and secure Games.
