Belgrade had a bid to host the 1992 Summer Olympic Games. It came in 3rd place, just after Barcelona and Paris. That happened in 1986, way before all the crazy stuff of the ’90s happened and we actually had a decent bid, and that’s is when this beautiful logo was created.
So marvelously done with the Olympic circles and the representation of two rivers of Belgrade, Danube and Sava. Simple and effective. I don’t know who painted it on this wall but it fits right in.
A logo of the games that never happened, in a country that soon afterwards fell apart, painted on a wall of a ruined house. So if you’re strolling through Savamala, go to Kraljevića Marka 13 (just across from the Magacin u Kraljevica Marka which is also worth a visit) and take a look at this small piece of Belgrade’s history that we forgot and a history that could have been.
