Official Olympic Posters


No official poster was made for the 1896 Olympic games, but the cover page of the official report is often used to represent the Athens 1896 Games. For the Olympic Games in Paris 1900 being the athletic part of the World Exhibition no specific poster was created either with the exception of one single event being fencing. The presented photo of St. Louis 1904 shows the cover of the programmes of these games. As from London 1908 there has always been one main poster. Initially there was only the main poster (partially in different languages). Since the late 1960’ies a surge of posters has been produced in different categories: sports, advertising, arts, culture, bid-process, torch relay and volunteering.
