Iran threatens to boycott London 2012 Olympics over "racist" logo
Mon, 28 Feb 21:05:00 2011

Iran calls London 2012 logo "racist"


Iran said on Monday it might boycott the 2012 London Olympics because of the event's "racist" logo which resembles the word Zion, the official Irna news agency reported.

The secretary general of the National Olympic Committee said Iran had made the complaint in a letter to the International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge and was waiting for a response.

The London logo shows the numbers 2012 in four jagged multi-coloured figures and was launched in 2007. Zion is a term that refers to the city of Jerusalem and Iran does not recognise Israel.

Was that logo designed by a 5 yr old?
UK must be short of artistic talent these days.

Well, it kinda looks like the word Zion - I guess - if you screw your face up just right, switch the letters around, and bend them into the letters Z-I-O-N...

when the logo was first revealed to the public, some of the press likened it to Lisa Simpson performing a certain act.

the design cost UK taxpayers £400,000 !

there is info here on the reasons why it was picked [link to news.bbc.co.uk]

despite what the UK government put's out, many many people don't want the Olympics mainly because of the cost's involved due to anything we build here costs twice as much as anywhere else, the Millennium Dome cost one billion pounds & so did our new football stadium Wembley !

there are reports saying that the final costs could be twenty billion pounds.
What I find fantastic is any notion that there are answers beyond the realm of science. The answers are there. You just have to know where to look.

We're all gonna die. The only question is when & how you check out. Do you want it on your feet? Or on your knees... begging?! I ain't much for begging! Nobody ever gave me nothing!

Personally, I don't care if Iran boycotts the Olympics.

I just hope Rogge will file the complaint where it belongs - in the trash can.

The 2012 Logo us crap! I am sure they could have designed a much better logo for the event. I reckon the opening event will be mediocre and not as good as the Beijing Olympic Opening Ceremony which was awesome!

Be warned.... Flying into Heathrow airport over London, you would forgiven for thinking that you were flying into a Third World Country, as it does look bleak and depressing from the air. I always think that when I land at Heathrow airport.
