By associating three iconic symbols – Marianne, the Olympic flame and a gold medal – the Paris 2024 emblem elegantly reflects the people-focused, fraternal Games France intends to host. And because the Olympic and Paralympic Games form two sides of the same coin, in 2024 they will share the same emblem for the first time ever, symbolising the pursuit of the same vision and the same ambition for both events.
The Paris 2024 brand
There are many ways to describe Paris 2024 – people-focused, disruptive, elegant, enthusiastic, impassioned, idealistic, audacious, rational – but really, the brand is just quintessentially French. It combines images with playful audacity. It juxtaposes modernity with timeless heritage. It draws on a whole spectrum of inspiration and operates where boldness meets originality. It promotes a positive, fraternal image of sport that is deeply in touch with reality.
The Paris 2024 brand is composed of five indivisible elements that guide our actions and reflect who we are.
A single emblem
A colour scheme packed with character
It tells a story and feeds into the creative concept of the identity. The main Paris 2024 colour scheme combines our three main colours – black, white and gold, echoing the emblem. Seven secondary colours closely connected to France are also available to reflect the energy and enthusiasm behind the event.
Structure & Fantasy
A typeface synonymous with French elegance
The powerful, refined and resolutely French Paris 2024 typeface takes its elegance from the Art Deco movement and its energy from sport itself.

Iconography in motion
Whether it’s focusing on a particular motion or a powerful attitude, momentum that can be felt or grace that can be seen, Paris 2024 offers a creative and curious take on these everyday movements that inject energy into both sport and life itself. By combining them with unexpected elements from architecture and the environment, they take on a strength or convey a different kind of poetry, which gives our images a unique angle.
An arch open to all possibilities
Reflecting architectural prowess, an invitation to the world, a nod to Art Deco and a triumphant symbol of victory, the arch combines a multitude of influences and cultural references.
The drawing of the arch, a core element of the Paris 2024 brand identity, reflects a geometric and minimalist version of the Arc de Triomphe using just basic lines. Flexible and coherent, it opens a number of different visual registers – epic, joyful, dynamic, disruptive and often poetic.
Paris 2024 also includes a number of institutional brands that extend the reach of the Games well beyond the sporting world into schools, local authorities, non-profit organisations and institutions so the positive impact of the Games is felt far and wide. There are currently three other brands, with others set to follow over the coming months. Their graphic identities focus on 2024 to underscore the initiatives rolled out each year until the Games.
An invitation to all young people in France
Generation 2024 is the educational programme of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games to increase the amount of physical activity young people have in their daily lives by getting them involved in sport as well as introducing them to the culture of sport and its values. The visual identity draws on the symbol of an amphitheatre and ripples spreading out to communicate the joy of learning through sport.Visit website

Towns, cities, regions, departments, clubs and federations around the country are bringing the Games to life through the Terre de Jeux label. Everyone on the ground is coming together, driven by the same desire to promote sport.
