Not only have demonstrators been very effective in interrupting the ceremonial Olympic torch relay in multiple cities, but also in getting very inventive with their manipulations of the famed interlocking rings logo of the games. The original design was created by Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1913 with each ring representing the five continents. But now with fueling protests surrounding he upcoming Beijing Summer Games, they’re being transformed and have taken on totally new meanings. The Times has a great slide show detailing some of the more interesting graphically remixed protest signs. |NYT|
