London 2012??

Lots of controversy at the moment around the new logo for the 2012 London Olympics which was unveiled yesterday and the number of people who have signed an online petition to have the logo changed has increased by more than 3000 when I looked at the end of school to more than 28000 now...


There is lots on the BBC website about the logo, what it is meant to represent, etc. - look here. People have also been sending alternative logos in to the BBC, which you can view here and here - interesting that many of the alternative logos include some idea of Britain and or London!

What do you think of the logo? Do you like it - why or why not? What about the alternative ones? Can you come up with a better one??

Edited to add: I've just signed the petition... Less than a minute later, my name was onto the second page!!

This Logo doesn't represent anything to do with our country as other's do.Plus the logo is boring to look at,a little to modern for my taste.

the logo isnt very good because it isnt clear wat it represents and doesnt say anything about london or england
