Japan unveiled Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympics emblems

Japan unveiled Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympics emblems
27 April 2016 Current Affairs: Japan's Olympic organisers unveiled the new official logos of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games on 25 April 2016. The emblems,designed by Asao Tokolo, feature an indigo-coloured check in the design.The Olympic logo features a circular Japanese traditional checkered pattern. Below the design are the words Tokyo 2020 and under them the five interlocking Olympic rings. The design is meant to express a refined elegance and sophistication that exemplifies Japan.The logos used traditional Japanese colours and patterns to represent the intercultural themes of the games. The logos incorporate the message of unity in diversity, and the idea that the Games seek to promote diversity as a platform to connect the world.

Controversy related to Olympic emblems : The initial design for the official emblems of the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics were unveiled on 24 July 2015. The logo resembled a stylized T, a red circle in the top-right corner represented a beating heart, the flag of Japan, and an inclusive world in which everyone accepts each other, and a black column in the centre represented diversity.However, shortly after the unveiling, Belgian graphics designer Olivier Debie accused the organizing committee of plagiarizing a logo that he had designed for the Théâtre de Liège. Debie’s design, aside from the circle, consisted of nearly identical shapes.The emblem's designer, Kenjiro Sano, defended the design, stating that he had never seen the Liège logo. However, Sano was found to have had a history of plagiarism.On 1 September 2015, following an emergency meeting of Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (TOCOG), Governor of Tokyo Yoichi Masuzoe announced that they had decided to scrap Sano's two logos.On 24 November 2015, an Emblems Selection Committee was established to organize an open call for design proposals.On 8 April 2016, a new shortlist of four pairs of designs for the Olympics and Paralympics were unveiled by the Emblems Selection Committee.

2020 Summer Olympics : The 2020 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, is a major international multi-sport event.The games are planned to be held from 24 July 2020 to 9 August 2020 in Tokyo, Japan.Tokyo was announced as the host city at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 7 September 2013.Tokyo previously hosted the 1964 Summer Olympic Games, and in 2020 will become the fifth city to host the Summer Olympic Games more than once.The city will also be hosting the 2020 Summer Paralympics.
