Tokyo 2020 Emblems Selection: The Organising Committee Announces the Establishment of a Preliminary Committee

It is essential that a transparent process to select the new Games emblems is set in motion as quickly as possible, and that the new emblems receive the support of the general public. Accordingly, the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee has today announced plans for the establishment of a preliminary committee to initiate a Tokyo 2020 Emblems Selection Committee (provisional name).

A chairperson will be appointed to head the preliminary committee. Following the addition of further members, the preliminary committee will select the membership of the Tokyo 2020 Emblems Selection Committee, examine the issues surrounding the withdrawal of the previous Games emblems, and based on its findings will formulate a basic policy for the selection of new Tokyo 2020 Games emblems.

Tokyo 2020 will keep posting information regarding the selection of the new Games emblems on its website.
