Tokyo 2020 pictograms unveiled at start of 500 day countdown

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) has unveiled the official sport pictograms of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, including images for both canoe sprint and canoe slalom.

The pictograms were launched with 500 days to go until the start of the Tokyo Olympics on July 24 next year.

In line with the Tokyo 2020 brand promise of “Innovation from Harmony”, the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 sport pictograms are designed to subtly communicate the characteristics and athleticism of each sport, as well as artistically highlights the dynamism of athletes.

They will play a key role in enhancing the experience of athletes and spectators alike during the Olympic Games.

Olympic Games sport pictograms were first introduced at the Tokyo 1964 Games, which arose from a need to communicate visually to an increasingly international group of athletes and spectators.

Since then, pictograms have been created for every edition of the Games.

While paying great respect to the predecessors and inheriting the Tokyo 1964 pictograms by innovating them, the Tokyo 2020 pictograms not only adhere to the objective of communicating information, but also are designed to display athletes’ vibrant movement in the most attractive way.
