The new logo for the 2014 Commonwealth Games which will take place in Glasgow, was revealed yesterday. The logo was designed by Glasgow-based design agency Marque and according to reports, is said to have cost £95,000. The design is based around numbers associated with the games. This is the 20th time the games have been held, there are 17 sports represented, and it takes place over 11 days of competition and 1 host city.
The Commonwealth Games Federation has also approved, for the first time, the use of an alternative Gaelic form of the design. The Gaelic version contains the type “Glaschu 2014”, followed by "20mh Geamaichean a’Cho Fhlaitheis" (20th Commonwealth Games).
