Wolff Olins and Red Design create 2004 Olympic symbol

The symbol for the 2004 Athens Olympics has been created jointly by Wolff Olins and Red Design in Athens. The Olympic Committee received 242 proposals for the design. The final image presents an olive wreath as the circle of life’, on a background of aquatic blue. One of the Greek adjudicators, Angela Delivoria, director of the Benaki Museum, says the insignia inspires a return to the original spirit of the games. The symbol will come to mark the rebirth of the Olympic Games and the role of Greece in the world.’
