Logo Animation: New York Opening Ceremony

Logo Animation: Tokyo Opening Ceremony

Logo Animation: Edinburgh Opening Ceremony

Each year the original 12 animations for the years 1994-2003 were followed by the following years.

In consequence, to see all 15 animations for the period 1994-2006, play the Edinburgh animation.

By Edinburgh, the animation was getting sufficiently long and demanding that the decision was made that starting in 2007 only the current year's animation and the three previous years would be played.

Playing the Animations

With the various formats available on devices, this animation is scalable to your window size. It is best viewed in a window that has a 4:3 aspect ratio. Internally the SVG address space is 1024 by 768.

To start the animation, hit the cyan circle on the bottom right.

The animation should run in a modern version of Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari.

Microsoft do not provide support for all the facilities in HTML5. The major omission is supporting SVG's declarative animation functionality used to animate the logos.
