ORGANISERS have unveiled the logo for the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
The mysterious blue and yellow tape artwork is in locations across the West Midlands, including in Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull.
The blue and yellow “B” emblem is meant to link the venues of the sporting events for the games.
A Commonwealth social event was held in Birmingham over the weekend and saw regional dance and musical groups take to the stage and there was a chance for visitors to try Commonwealth cuisine with Team England athletes, games representatives as well as business and community leaders.
Ian Reid, Birmingham 2022 chief executive officer, said: “In three years’ time, millions of people from across the globe will join us in celebrating the opening of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, which is why it will provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to truly put this city and vibrant region on the map.
“The idea behind the Commonwealth Social event is that we wanted to celebrate this major milestone and to give people an indication of what to expect in three years’ time, when the eyes of the world will be focused on Birmingham and the West Midlands region.
“Just like the Games, sport is at the heart of today’s event, but Birmingham 2022 will also be a showcase for everything that’s great about this region; the culture, the food and, most importantly, the people that live here. We’re creating the Games for everyone and we’re already collaborating with local people to help make that vision a reality.”
