On September 13, 2017, the International Olympic Committee simultaneously awarded the 2024 and 2028 Olympic Games to Paris and Los Angeles respectively. Both candidates will become the second and third cities to have hosted the Olympics three times, after London. As such, the Paris Organising Committee adjusted the logo accordingly.

The Olympic emblem was unveiled at an event on October 21, 2019 at Le Grand Rex[1]; a cinema and concert venue on Boulevard Poissonnière. Etienne Thobois; the chief executive of the Organising Committee stated beforehand that the new emblem wouldn't contain any references to the Eiffel Tower, but rather the "wider vision of the Olympic Games".[2]

The emblem of Paris 2024 was created by Paris-based Royalties Ecobranding and is a minimalist interpretation of the Olympic spirit imbued with unmistakably French eccentricities. It takes heavy influence from the Art Deco period, which was in style around the time of the previous Parisian games in 1924. For the first time, the Olympic and Paralympic games share the exact same emblem.

The symbol is inspired by three images:

  • The round shape of the emblem represents a gold medal; the highest honour that can be bestowed on an athlete at the games.
  • The negative space inside the medal is the shape of a flame, a common symbol of the Olympics and an allusion to the Olympic Flame.
  • The two previous elements merge with the lips to create an image of Marianne, the national personification of France in the era of the French Revolution.

The symbol is accompanied by a bespoke typeface with a variable thickness. Like the symbol itself, the font has its roots in the Art Deco heritage of the city and specifically typefaces such as Excelsior FTF and Banjo. The Paralympic variant uses the newly-refreshed Paralympic Agitos designed by North and dropped the text "Paralympic Games" present in previous games' logos.
