Olympics, Let the games begin
Super project from our friend Olympic Logo a Day, they got the coolest Olympic countdown: an Olympic Rings logo remade every day as they countdown to London 2012 (
Sarah Hyndman´s is the artist behind these alternative design suggestions for the London 2012 Olympic rings. I love how creative, unexpected and colourful they are.
The design of the official Olympic flag, which is five interconnected rings on a white background, was created Pierre de Coubertin in 1914. The colours are (from left to right) blue, yellow, black, green, and red. It was first flown at the Antwerp Olympic stadium in 1920.
The five Olympic rings represent the five major regions of the world – Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceana, and are interconnected to symbolize the friendship to be gained from these international competitions. The colors were chosen because at least one of them appeared on the flag of every country in the world.
A very simple but striking idea placing five everyday objects where you might expect to see the rings.
Simplicity is everything in a complex world. Enjoy
Holding an Olympic Games means evoking history. Pierre de Coubertin
