The 2024 Summer Olympics (officially the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad) and the 2024 Summer Paralympics, both colloquially referred to as Paris 2024, are two upcoming international multi-sport events that are scheduled to take place respectively from 26 July to 11 August 2024 and 28 August to 8 September 2024 in Paris, France.
The applicant city logo is the Eiffel Tower on an athletics track flanked by a ribbon reading "#PARIS 2024".
9 February 2016
Designed by the Parisian branch of Dragon Rouge, the candidacy logo was unveiled on 9 February 2016 at the Arc de Triomphe. The logo itself is a stylisation of the Eiffel Tower that forms the numbers 2 and 4 with the colours of the Olympic rings.
On 13 September 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.
English Paralympic variant
Emblem projected onto the Eiffel Tower, celebrating the successful bid
On 21 October 2019, the final Olympic emblem was unveiled during an event at Le Grand Rex, a cinema and concert venue on Boulevard Poissonnière. Etienne Thobois, the chief executive of the Organising Committee, stated beforehand that the new emblem would not feature any references to the Eiffel Tower or other Parisian landmarks, but rather the "wider vision of the Olympic Games".
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 Paris games in 1924. For the first time, the Olympic and Paralympic games will share the exact same emblem.
The symbol is inspired by three images:
The round shape represents a gold medal, the highest honour bestowed upon an athlete at the Games.
The negative space inside the medal represents the Olympic Flame.
The first two elements merge with the lips to form an image of Marianne, the national personification of France during the era of the French Revolution.
The symbol is accompanied by a bespoke typeface with a variable thickness, designed by Elliott Amblard and Julie Soudanne. Like the symbol itself, it has its roots in the Art Deco heritage of the city, and is inspired by specific typefaces such as Excelsior FTF and Banjo. The Paralympic variant uses the newly refreshed Paralympic Agitos, designed by North, and omits the text present in previous Paralympic games' logos.
