After an intense month of voting, Special Olympics Ontario is proud to unveil Team Ontario’s new tag line for the 2014 National Summer Games. With the incorporation of the provincial flag, “Bring it ON” truly embraces this team’s provincial spirit, commitment to improvement and dedication to sport. The logo includes the Union Jack found in the canton of the Ontario flag, which is represented in the “O”. The Ontario shield of arms is encompassed in the “N”.
The logo was designed by Mike Rea an intern student from Durham College who is currently working with Special Olympics Ontario (marketing department). Mike utilized his graphic design expertise to create artwork that represents the athletes’ positive spirit and admirable determination. The tag line embodies the competitive nature of these events. It is also intended to inspire athletes to achieve their personal best. We look forward to seeing the athletes “Bring it ON” in July at the 2014 National Summer Games in Vancouver – July 8th – 13th.
