Lillehammer 1994 – The Colours

Inspired by the close proximity to nature, sky and snow, the main colours for the emblem Lillehammer ‘94 became cobalt blue and white. The colour palette consisted of 11 colours for culture – and special signal colours and various shades of grey. Together, these colours made up the festival colours that would contribute to making the Games a sports extravaganza and international festival. The colours were selected with the intent of giving the ‘94 Winter Games its own identity. The colours for culture gave the Games a national identity, and the signal colours gave the
event a festive identity. The culture colours were selected based on Norwegian folk art traditions. The signal colours were taken from Norwegian nature in the summertime. All the colours could be combined, but the colours for culture were supposed to dominate.
