ISNA - Tehran
TEHRAN (ISNA)-The Secretary General of Iran's Olympic Committee Bahram Afsharzadeh said on Monday a freemasonry organization has designed London Olympic Games logo.
"We had to show protest against the measure. We intend to write a letter to Asian Olympic Council to call for them to follow up on the issue more seriously," he told ISNA.
The logo rcarried the word of "Zion". Some Muslim nations objected the issue after the symbol was unveiled, but objections were snubbed by local officials of the summer games and International Olympic Committee.
Afsharzadeh added some British people and different organizations in the country protested against the symbol as well.
"This is the first time that it has happened in the history of Olympic. Zionists have exercised influence in Britain and based on our information, designer of the summer games' logo has been a Zionist organization linked to freemasons," he said.
Olympic summer games will start in August 2012.
