Let the games begin

In a little over a month from now, 71 teams from the Commonwealth of Nations will meet in Delhi to participate in the 12-day event. The Commonwealth Games have been marred by corruption, and the infrastructure for the Games, and the city, is far from being complete.

The logo

The logo of the 19th Commonwealth Games is inspired by the ‘Chakra’, the national symbol of freedom, unity and power.

Spiralling upwards, it depicts the growth of India into a proud, vibrant nation, its billion people coming together to fulfil their destiny. It reflects India’s journey from tradition to modernity, its economic transformation into a superpower…reaching out to the world and leading the way, even as it enthusiastically embraces all the Commonwealth Games Association nations and territories to become one.

Come out and play

The logo tagline is an invitation to people to let go of themselves and participate in the Games to the best of their abilities, in the true sprit of the Games. It is an exhortation to set new records, to outperform, and to raise the bar by scaling new peaks of achievement. It is also a call to the people of India, especially Delhi, to come out in support of the Games and play the perfect hosts.
