The five cities shortlisted to host the 2004 Olympic Games are Athens, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Rome and Stockholm. They were whittled down from an original line-up of 11, the eliminated bidders being Istanbul, Lille, Rio de Janeiro, San Juan, Seville and St Petersburg. The successful bid logos – all symbolic in some way – were created by Rafaella Barba-Anagnostakou for Athens, an in-house design team for Buenos Aires, Sampson Associates and Rose Dendy-Young Studios for Cape Town, design group SCS for Rome, and Gabor Palotay for Stockholm.
