Gold Coast 2018 Emblem Unveiled

Emblem unveiling on the Gold Coast

The emblem for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games was revealed yesterday, marking exactly five years until the Opening Ceremony on 4 April, 2018.

The emblem, a sunburst of colour, was designed to capture the essence of the Gold Coast and the Commonwealth Games.

“The emblem has been inspired by the Gold Coast’s stunning beach-side location, its iconic skyline, and the colours are representative of the coast, the hinterland and the celebratory atmosphere, which is synonymous with the region,” said Queensland Commonwealth Games Minister Jann Stuckey.

“Centred upon fluid representations of a gymnast, a hurdler and a swimmer, the emblem reflects the Games’ deep heritage and humanity.

“Today’s unveiling shows the world the Gold Coast can’t wait to share this moment in history.”

The emblem received praise from the President of the Commonwealth Games Federation, HRH Tunku Imran of Malaysia.

“I’m delighted with the emblem. I feel it captures perfectly the warmth, the energy, the fun and the vibrancy of the Gold Coast and Queensland, and represents everything the Commonwealth is looking forward to in 2018,” Prince Imran said.
