2012 Olympics logo 'here to stay'

The London 2012 Olympics logo

The 2012 Olympics logo hasn't been too popular, but the government says it's here to stay.

Nearly 8,000 of you have voted in a Newsround poll on the design, with 65% saying they're not impressed.

Elsewhere, thousands of people have signed an online petition to get the logo scrapped.

But in a House Of Lords debate, a government spokesman said the Olympic organisers would not be asked to reconsider the design.

He added: "We believe that the new London 2012 brand will establish the character and identity of the 2012 Games."


In the debate, the logo was described by one speaker as "uninspiring".

"It may be uninspiring to some and inspiring to others," the government spokesman responded.
