As masterful as they are, the two official posters for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, unveiled Monday March 4, are creating controversy. On

“We will notice their desire to erase all signs of Christianity”, “They dared”, “A shame for our country”, it is possible to read, pell-mell. “No French flag appears. The invisibility of our identity is an unacceptable fault. Wokism must be fought relentlessly everywhere,” says RN deputy Nicolas Meironnet. When MEP Gilbert Collard points out “the work of the traitors guilty of the fundamental denial of France”.

The work, created by designer Ugo Gattoni, is teeming with details. “You have to find the mascots, find the flame bearer, find the disciplines… There are a lot of things to look for. It is a poster which is extremely symbolic, which tells many things about the Paris 2024 project, starting with the Bélem which will bring the Olympic torch to Marseille, explained the artist to Le Figaro this Monday, during the presentation of his posters . Also with the Marseille Marina, site of sailing competitions.”


Many monuments are represented there: “The Banque Populaire de Le Cléac’h, there is the Eiffel Tower, the Stade de France, all the new sports: break dancing on the roof of the Stade de France, skateboarding, BMX , climbing… There is the Teahupo’o wave in Tahiti with surfers. But there is also Stoke Mandeville, the origin of Paralympism which is on an island because it is in England. There are also many monuments, whether it is the Arc-de-Triomphe, the Grand Palais, the Concorde, the Trocadéro, the Invalides… It’s a pharaonic project.”

Contacted by Le Figaro, Ugo Gattoni and the Olympic Organizing Committee have not yet responded to our requests.
