Athens 1906 – Identification Badge for Competitors

Designer: unknown

This badge above is a first attempt and is a kind of an emblem. In the middle is a monogram with the letters "O" for Olympic Games and "A" for Athens. All around a typical Greek ornamentation on a light blue background. Including the year of the games "1906". With this badge all athletes were marked on their clothes. For this time a very modern and reduced badge. This symbol is not recognized by the IOC and therefore no official emblem. The IOC does not recognize this Second International Olympic Games at Athens in 1906.
