Road to Paris: Modern Pentathlon’s coat of arms pictogram revealed
As we approach the 500-day countdown to the next Olympic Games, the Paris 2024 Organising Committee has revealed the official pictograms.
The concept of Olympic pictograms was created by the organisers of Tokyo 1964 and has become a popular design feature, adding unique characteristics to each Games. Paris 2024 created a ‘coat of arms’ style pictogram for each sport on the programme, including Modern Pentathlon.
The organising team said in a statement: “Paris 2024 has reinvented the concept of Olympic and Paralympic pictograms, elevating them from mere visual aids to striking coats of arms serving as rallying cries for sports fans.
“The 62 pictograms of the Olympic and Paralympic Games are standards that symbolise not only the different sports, but also pride, values, and a large and diverse family.”
The Paris 2024 Olympic Games take place from July 24 to August 11, 2024, with Modern Pentathlon featuring on the last four days.
