The Iconic Posters, created by Parisian illustrator Ugo Gattoni, were unveiled on 4 March 2024 at Musee d’Orsay.


The Paris 2024 Organising Committee has unveiled two iconic posters that will be used to symbolise and promote this year’s Paralympic and Olympic Games. The posters, which offer a visual interpretation of the Games, are on public display at the Musee d’Orsay from 5 to 10 March.

The posters were created by illustrator Ugo Gattoni and feature major symbols of the Paris 2024 Paralympic and Olympic Games, along with iconic landmarks in the French capital. The Paralympic and Olympic posters complement each other when placed side by side.

A closer look

The two posters take people on a stroll through a “fantasy world of sport”. Historical monuments, including the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, are illustrated in vibrant colours, as are Paralympic and Olympic venues, such as the Stade de France and the Invalides.

The Paris 2024 Iconic Posters were created with a diptych design, bringing together the two Games. The Paralympic Poster and Olympic Poster were designed together: each one can work independently, while combining to form a united image that tells the overall story of Paris 2024.

Together, the two posters highlight and celebrate the shared ambition of Paris 2024 for the Paralympic Games and the Olympic Games.

A total of 47 sports (18 Paralympic and 29 Olympic sports) are represented in the two posters. Eight Phryges, the Paris 2024 mascots, are also present.

The Paralympic Poster includes an illustration of the three Agitos, the Paralympic symbol, and a reference to Stoke Mandeville in Great Britain, the birthplace of Paralympic sport.

Two posters, one story

In order to create the posters, Paris 2024 worked with Gattoni, a French illustrator known for his unique style. He spent more than 2,000 hours over six months.

“His highly colourful world captures all the richness and diversity of our project,” Paris 2024 President Tony Estanguet said.

“A veritable fresco showcasing sport in the city, these posters are also an ode to our motto: ‘Games wide open.’ They tell the story of our Games, a story that is at once festive, moving and universal, and that speaks to each and every one of us.

The posters are available for purchase at the Musee d’Orsay and on the Paris 2024 shop website.
