But Mohammad Aliabadi, head of the National Olympic Committee in the Islamic republic, insisted the logo was a sign of “racism”.
In a letter to International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge, he wrote: “Unfortunately, we all are witnessing that the upcoming Olympics … faces a serious challenge, definitely spawned out of some people’s racist spirit.
“The use of the word Zion by the designer of Olympics logo ….in the emblem of the Olympic Games 2012 is a very revolting act.”
