Rio de Janeiro unveiled its 2016 Olympics logo before more than one million New Year's revellers on Copacabana beach.
The flowing symbol resembles three figures - orange, green and blue - embraced at the arms and in a flowing dance.
"The logo for Rio's 2016 Games conveys passion and transformation. The passion of all Cariocas (Rio citizens) and Brazilians for sport and celebration," said Carlos Nuzman, president of the Rio Olympic organising committee.
"And the transformation that the Games are already bringing to Rio and to Brazil."
