The new Olympic emblem is based on the number 2012 - the year the Games take place and includes the Olympic Rings and the word London.

For the first time the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games emblems have been based on the same core shape.

Available in four colours – pink, blue, green and orange - the new emblem is modern and will be dynamic, evolving in the years between now and 2012.

It symbolises the Olympic spirit and the ability of the Games to inspire people to take part - not just as spectators, but as volunteers, in the Cultural Olympiad and more.

Launching the brand at the Roundhouse in North London, London 2012 Chair Seb Coe said: "London 2012 will be 'Everyone's Games', everyone's 2012. This is the vision at the very heart of our brand.

"It will define the venues we build and the Games we hold and act as a reminder of our promise to use the Olympic spirit to inspire everyone and reach out to young people around the world.

"It is an invitation to take part and be involved."

IOC President Jacque Rogge commented: "This is a truly innovative brand logo that graphically captures the essence of the London 2012 Olympic Games - namely to inspire young people around the world through sport and the Olympic values. Each edition of the Olympic Games brings its own flavour and touch to what is now well over a century of modern Olympic history; the brand launched today by London 2012 is, I believe, an early indication of the dynamism, modernity and inclusiveness with which London 2012 will leave its Olympic mark."

Nah. Rubbish. I applaud its boldness which I think only a place like London can pull off when we're talking something the whole world will be watching, but I think we could have done far better.

Far too retro. Far too 80s. Far too confusing!

Well said. Just because it's bold, just because it's vibrant, just because it's "not bland"... it doesn't automatically mean it's any good!
