Our claim and logo
The claim of the World Games is:
Together we can achieve anything we want.
Nobody can stop us.
We invented the claim with our athletes.
We write it this way:
We created the logo with our athletes.
These were our thoughts:
All people are different.
We want to show that through the different colours.
We asked our athletes:
When you think of the World Games,
how do you feel?
what do you think?
We are happy.
We are proud.
We are excited.
We wanted the logo to represent these emotions and feelings.
The World Games take place in Berlin.
So, the logo should contain symbols of Berlin.
For example, the television tower or the Berlin Bear.
