Anyone like this thing?

I think it's ridiculously stupid as a symbol to represent Cananda in the winter games.

I'm disapointed

I agree what does mean about Vancouver and Whistler and winter. I can just see the stupid mascot now....

The head of the olympics in lucerne got it right. He said it looks like a goalie.

I guess if you want the symbol to look like a hockey player they nailed it, but not what I would think is a good symbol for the whole games.

yes for the Nagano logo / the 2010 goalie - hmmm, not so much

A design representing a traditional Inuit directional marker which steers people away from danger and symbolizes the hospitality of a country

I haven't seen it yet, but my reaction is , "Who gives a rat's ass?" It's another fuckin' corporate symbol designed with one purpose - to sell stupid things to gullible people.

I think it's simple and whimsical. I like it's symbolism and the native reference--even if it's more of an Inuit symbol ( but it's still Canadian ).

Okay, now I've seen it, and WTF? I agree with maury - The makers of Gumby should sue. About as an obscure a Canadian reference as they could get. The It doesn't even have tits. As bad as Turin's wire mesh.

RE: Olympics 2010 logo.

Now that is brilliant. And the Province newspaper had to actually explain it to us, because I bet many people really didn't have a clue what the connection was.

Looks like something a five year old would bring home from school and put on the fridge. I'm not knocking Inuit Art or culture, but this over simplified representation is quite ridiculous.

Maybe they should have held the 2010 Olympics up North. At least there's sure to be cold temperatures and snow.

Then there was the big unveiling ceremony at GM Place. Oh, I wish I could have been there. What a thrill it must of been.

They'll been spending more money trying to explain just what the Hell it's supposed to represent.

The logo in Mario's post looks like a sailboat in English Bay with the north shore mountains in the background. The Inukshuk logo looks good but it could have been drawn better. Last summer I rode from Winnipeg to Ottawa and saw lots and lots of Inukshuks on rock cuts on Hwy 17. It's a very popular symbol!
The Torino logo looks like a bit of snow fence (do people in Van even know what a snow fence is?) . What is it supposed to represent?

I think they represent loopholes in the costs estimated for the Games.

The guys on the TEAM 1040 radio were laughing about it looking like Pacman or an old Atari game graphic. I'm not certain that a logo should require a pamphlet explaining all the nuances of the design. You should be able to look at it and understand that it isn't holding a rocket launcher. :confused:

Vancouver's symbol

should be a giant pot leaf riding a snowboard.....that encapsulates our city's two favourite pastimes perfectly....and perhaps the pot leaf could be holding a latte.

People would get it once they came here.

They should allow sex to be an Olympic sport and have Veronica represent Canada. The logo should be rearranged to the following layout IMHO

hahaha. Good one Gotsome. Did you do that yourself or did you snag the pic off the net?
