For 8 million country it is a great deal to make its budget 12 billion $ in 2008 (Note: in 2001 budget of Azerbaijan was 1.2 billion $). So, Think Again!

For information,Baku is the only city among the candidates had 1 international and 2 european tournaments in different kinds of sport in 2007.
So, Think Again!

You can see promotion clip of 23-rd Rhythmic Gymnastics European Championship in 2007 in Baku: http://youtube.com/watch?v=DnY3D254IrI

Yes, geographically Azerbaijan is partly european. Actually this country is a border state between Europe and Asia. Economically and politically Azerbaijan have very close relationship with Europe. Azerbaijan is a member of many european organizations (except EU) and has governmental course of euro-integration.

Maybe its meaningfull for Azerbijan but it means nothing to the rest of the world. And it is a universal event. Istanbul logo was too simple. Istanbul deserves to host an olympics someday and of course deserves a better logo!!

I'm not saying Azerbaijan is terrible in poverty, me, living here in another candidate city is quite the same as Baku but no poverty.

i think rio's doha's and baku's don't fit because they either don't have the 5 basic olympic colors representing the continents or miss some.
i'm not saying they are bad logos, i just think they don't fit.

For today YES, but its annual growth is some 20-30% per year. In 2016 and in further times will be much better budget and enough money to host Olympic Games.

P.S. Kardeş benim išinde šok merakedici bişey ki kardeşlerimizdende karşı šıkanlar var. Ben hišbir konuda (İstanbul 2008 ve İzmir Expo 2015 išinde) asla karşı šıkmazdım! Unutma

Bro believe me, they are not going to let muslim country to host Olympic Games, even if it has a budget of few western countries. Maybe it is my opinion, but i don't believe it anyway. A great example of it is ISTANBUL. For Azerbaijan it is early for Olympics (maybe in next years) i can accept it, maybe Istanbul and Kuala-Lumpur can do it once. But i hope best wishes to Doha too!

GDP growth of 20% or 30% per year? That's kinda impossible really, do you have facts to prove those percentages? Azerbaijan is just too poor to host the olympics at this time - even for Greece, that is more developed than Azerbaijan and has a higher population - the Olympics were a huge investment. And is there any info on where the olympic site will be located in Baku, what constructions are needed, what they will cost and what they will look like etc? None of this info can be found on the bid's website...

logo must reflect the culture of the country. Okay Athens logo was refering ancient Olympics, but it was the only example

I don't think many people care about the logos of Olympic Games. They're just some silly drawing to most people, nothing more and nothing less. You aren't gonna win an Olympics bid by having a good logo.

What are the reasons they won't let a muslim country host it, they should choose likely countries in regions which hasn't hosted one yet.
