The next-but-one Commonwealth Games will begin in exactly five years' time

The Gold Coast 2o18 Commonwealth Games Corporation today revealed the logo design (opens in new tab) for the 21st Commonwealth Games, shown above. The design was unveiled in a ceremony in Queensland, Australia, exactly five years before the opening of the event.

The logo is already being used on promotional merchandise, the sale of which will go towards sending Australian athletes to the 2014 Games in Glasgow, Scotland, and on the event's website (opens in new tab). But it will be a few years until we see the games mascots, officials added.

The design's colours of gold, green and blue have been used to symbolise the Gold Coast's beaches, water and hinterland.
