Iran have protested against the already controversial logo of the 2012 Olympic Games, saying the emblem is racist and spells the word "Zion," the ILNA news agency reported on Monday.


I thought I heard it all already.

Although I can't see anything racist about it, but must say it is one ugly looking thing. Can't see anything "modern, bold, flexible" about it and the city of London should seriously reconsider a redesign.

The entire marketing campaign for the London Olympics needs a massive overhauling ASAP!! it almost looks like a campaign to promote the gay rights movement and a tampon advert! I'm all for marketing and creativity but that dose'nt include being juvenile :lol:

I dont see anything offensive in the symbol, sure the choice of colors for the campaign is a little bold, but thats just good marketing
