Los Angeles - Los Angeles has unveiled its logo for the city's bid for the 2024 Olympics, displaying it on a digital screen shortly after sunset on the 30th floor of a downtown skyscraper.

The logo is a figure of a soaring angel with outstretched arms and legs illuminated by the rays of the sun, which emanate from a point of light at the figure's heart in a palette of purple, red, orange and yellow, colors often seen in the city sky at sunrise and sunset. The city's slogan for its bid is "Follow the Sun."
