With the official motto for the upcoming London Olympic Games being “Inspire a Generation”, the International Olympic Committee or the IOC never actually thought that their motto would actually inspire a whole generation to hate the logo of the Olympic Games. The emblem that was unveiled to the public for the first time in 2007 has been adorning the billboards almost all over the city as well as other parts of the country and in many other countries as well which are scheduled to have the Olympic Flame.
When the logo was unveiled for the first time 5 years ago, a petition was launched on GoPetition.com known as the ‘Change the London 2012 Logo’. The creator who launched the petition was of the opinion that the logo of the Olympic Games in London was an embarrassment and also that it portrayed the host city and the nation in the worst way possible. The petition became so popular that it gathered more than 50,000 signatures from people who wanted the logo to be changed in just 2 days. However, after 2 days, the creator closed the petition as it became increasingly clear that the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games would, in no way, change the logo for the Games.
