Lillehammer 1994 – Emblem

Designer: Engen/Harlem & Designgruppen'94


Already in 1983 Engen & Harlem had developed the symbol Northern Lights, which was used for the applications of 1992 and 1994. After Lillehammer was awarded the Games, a team of four under the direction of Petter T. Moshus, named Designgruppen’94, developed the final version of the emblem. It consists of a white, stylised Northern Lights in the night sky, a crystal pattern symbolising a snow flurry and winter landscape, the Olympic rings and the name “Lillehammer’94”. The crystal pattern allows a smooth colour transition between cobalt blue (night sky) and white (snow). So the coloured Olympic rings can stand on a white surface.
