Then, I see this logo for my favorite Austrian Bundesliga team and I’m wondering how they got permission for the rings logo. It seems to violate all the Olympic rules, but it’s still used and good. I assume they got permission to use them (since the city has hosted the Olympics a couple times), but it struck me as strange that the Olympic rings logo was so prominently featured on a pro team’s logo. Does anybody know why and if any other cities that have hosted have the rings in their pro teams logo?

But I think that has nothing to do with the rings, it’s just imposing. Members GM was an official sponsor of the 1996 Olympics. Buick is their luxury division. Like any sponsor, they were allowed to use the rings, just like how you see the rings on Coke cans or how NBC will add the rings to their logo during Olympic years. Posted December 31, 2016 I think Wacker Innsbruck invented the Olympic Rings logo in 1964, when Innsbruck hosted the Winter Games the first time. So it has indeed to do with Innsbruck hosting the Games. 1964 was also the year Wacker Innsbruck played in the first Austrian Division the first time. 315 posts 17,998 Share this post maybe because they’re all white and not in the logo’s colors?
