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."
Broadcast online, Tuesday's ceremony was
attended by Mayor Eric Garcetti, LA 2024 chairman Casey Wasserman, retired
Olympic champion swimmer Janet Evans, who is an LA 2024 vice chair and director
of athlete relations, and USOC chief marketing officer Lisa Baird.
