Official Singapore YOG Logo Unveiled
Here’s a look at some memorable moments during the official Singapore YOG Logo launch. This event took place on the afternoon of 10 January 2009 during the YOG CAN! Carnival.

After formal speeches, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports, accompanied by other VIPs launched the sequence of mechanisms that would reveal the new Singapore YOG Logo. The logo will become one of the most prominent designs to feature in all YOG-related events leading up to the world’s first Youth Olympic Games to be held in Singapore in 2010.

In a candid remark to a group of supporters and well wishers, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan warned that what we were about to see was a complicated launch mechanism prepared by the engineering students of Nanyang Technological University. He need not have worried as the approximately two-minute long sequence, involving interconnected parts hung on a wall, moved without a hitch. It culminated in a countdown as a clock ticked down the final 10 seconds before a machine-gun burst of balloons revealed the impressive looking new Singapore YOG logo.

A shower of confetti rained from the white tented roof as the audience cheered and clapped in a spontaneous moment of wild celebration.

Examine the new YOG logo closely. What do you think the individual parts represent?

According to the Singapore 2010 YOG:

The Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Logo – ‘Spirit of Youth’

Spirit of Youth – the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Logo –
celebrates Singapore 2010 in an adventurous, open and fun way. It evokes the Singaporean sense of confidence and progress.

The three distinct elements of the logo are:

The Flame of Passion

The intense red flame represents the passion to learn and the power
of positive thinking. Red is also the national colour of Singapore.

The Star of Champions

The rich purple star symbolises excellence and the pride of
representing one’s nation.

The Crescent of Tomorrow

The crescent reflects dynamic youth, full of promise. It has the lush green and calm blue colours of a tropical island city.

The Singapore 2010 Wordmark

Its active appearance comprises individual and unique characters
that signify harmony among the diverse participants.

Spirit of Youth inspires all of us to express the Olympic spirit and celebrate the first-ever Youth Olympic Games.
