Did you know that icons of each Olympic sport were created by the Japanese during the 1964 Olympics? This was the last time the city hosted the Olympics before 2020/2021 and the committee wanted to bridge the language barriers participants faced. Creating pictorial icons was the perfect solution as they clearly communicated the sports throughout all languages and cultures. While these icons were created for a practical use, they have become iconic (pun intended) for the Olympic branding. They are such a big deal that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony featured them as one of the opening acts! Think about it, while small, viewers see these icons on every broadcast, and Olympians see these icons plastered all over the Olympic village, stadiums, courts, fields, and pools. They are everywhere and have played a huge role since 1964.
While most of us aren’t Olympians, if a rose medal exist, what sport would you excel at and what would the icon look life? When you are ordering from The Royal Rose, the entire order is customizable. Will you win the medal for best color combinations? Best design? Best lettering?
