2024 Olympic Games logo

Following a tradition started in Tokyo in 1964, all sports in the Olympic programme are depicted through iconic and unique graphic symbols (pictograms) which reflect the culture of the host nation.

(The word 'pictogram' comes from Greek and Latin, meaning 'painted word').

So Paris 2024 has now created their own unique sports pictograms for the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games.

They've also reinvented the concept for 2024, elevating them from mere simple and generalised images for signage, to a unique coat-of-arms style, paying homage to the complexity of each of these sports and what makes them original.

They will adorn the competition venues and appear everywhere that the Games are taking place, guiding spectators and competitors.

Olympic Games Pictograms

Every four years, people from all over the world gather together in one place to witness the greatest sporting event on the planet.

However, all of these people speak different languages and bring their own cultural backgrounds.

That's why an effective communications system is vital for visitors' guidance and information about the venues and competitions.

Pictograms were born from this need.


For each edition of the Games, the host city develops its own set of pictograms.

The design is created in order to achieve two very specific goals: to work as a 'wayfinder' tool for spectators, while also representing the local culture.


Each 2024 pictogram features a distinctive item of the sport it represents – such as arrows for archery, bicycles for cycling, or rackets for table tennis.

In addition, the pictograms also include a distinctive aspect of the field of play used for each sport.

Lastly, all of the pictograms are designed around an axis of symmetry to reinforce their coat-of-arms look.

These three elements combine into a unique coat of arm for every sport.


In total, there are 62 unique pictograms - 47 Olympic and 15 (+8 Olympics) Paralympic pictograms.
