Vietnam 2009
Emblem Vietnam 2009

The logo is the logical, scientific and proper combination of the features, both strong and flexible, of the typical motifs of sports games in Vietnam like the torch, the lotus and the symbol of the Olympic Council of Asia.

The logo is the image of a torch created by flaming colorful petals, lighting up an ambiance, exciting and imposing, of a major sports event. The lotus, with the petals joined together like twisted hands, a symbol of solidarity, friendship and cooperation.

A flower with many colors also symbolizes the vigorous vitality and the records made by the athletes and participating sports delegations. The lotus is a symbol of beauty, the beauty of delicacy and simplicity, strongly imbued with the identity of Vietnamese culture.

The logo of the Olympic Council of Asia is the image of a pistil, fresh and long lasting. It is also the red sunlight of victory and future-oriented development.
