2020 Olympic Candidate Cities Try To Make An Impression In London

ISTANBUL UNVEILS LOGO: GAMESBIDS.com reported that the Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan "unveiled Istanbul's logo" for the candidate phase of its bid for the '20 Summer Olympics. Voted for by the people of Turkey, it combines the flower of Istanbul, a tulip, with the city's world-famous skyline. The inspiration behind the new logo design comes from the bridge that Istanbul forms between Europe and Asia, with the bottom half of the flower representing Asia and the top half showing Europe (GAMESBIDS.com, 7/22).
