I think that logo on you tube is borning and I really do like the one that msicthon has added in the comments :-) That one at least has the coat of arms and I think that is cool. Also Glasgow is a great Historical City and that should have something on there to show that

The first instance of the logo used in anger in Glasgow city centre: advertising hoarding on the corner of Shuttle Street and Ingram Street.

I wonder if it'll get targeted eventually.

Its not good at all says nothing about Glasgow other than the word Glasgow.

Billy Connolly would have a field day with this logo and the explanation of it.

It would have been a far better excercise to involve students in the design in the same breath they could learn a bit about the history of Glasgow if the brief was to entail elements from the history of the town and a prize awarded to the winner.

Its just too easy to fob off things to big companies and get ripped off in the process.

I spotted something a bit concerning when looking at the trademark application associated with the new Glasgow 2014 logo: the application is seeking to be registered with classes 33 and 34. These classes are reserved exclusively for using the trademark to sell alcohol and tobacco products.

Surely a bit worrying for a sporting event!?!

Good one TeeHee. This just goes to show the rampant hypocrisy surrounding the games. Time and time again we have heard that there will be a legacy for the people of Glasgow from the games.... now we can see what it is.... a bottle of booze or a packet of fags with the city's very own logo on it. How quaint!!!
