PyeongChang 2018 officially unveiled sport pictograms for the Olympic Winter Games
The pictograms have been designed based on the Korean alphabet known as Hangeul. This is a system of letters that is unique to Korea and it was also used in the design of the official Games emblems. From the 16 vowels and 14 consonants of Hangeul that exist, four consonants and three vowels were selected and have been reflected in the pictograms.
The pictograms represent the 24 sporting competitions across the 15 disciplines of the Olympic Winter Games. These easily identifiable symbols will become synonymous with the different sports during the Games, as they guide fans to their events. From 8th- 25th February 2018 these emblems will come to life as more than 3,000 athletes compete for Olympic glory.
