Madrid: I keep wanting to make a turkey out of it. Plus a bright red middle finger? Are you kidding me?

Chicago and Tokyo are equally beautiful and streamlined.

Rio: Only three colors? You weren't even trying.

I miss the old Chicago logo as well. Bestest!

Anybody remember the 2012 NYC logo? Good logo!

Also remember that these are logos for the candidates, if they get selected, a new logo will be created.

Nobody else is seeing the "hand turkey" in Madrid's design? You know, how you used to draw an outline of your hand and then make it into a turkey for Thanksgiving (US kids, anyway)? And yes, I see that red middle finger, too.

The Olympics are very...tight about the use of their name, logo, etc. Years ago, I used to participate in the "Olympics of the Mind" creative competitions. The Olympic people would not allow the use of the word "Olympic," even though there was no possibility of confusing the two competitions. So it became "Odyssey of the Mind." Let's see Homer challenge THAT.
