Games Spirit is Alive in Prince George

Inspired by the northern summer sky and the surrounding forests of the unceded traditional territory of the Lheidli T‘enneh, the tagline and brand design for the Prince George 2022 BC Summer Games is seen in the smiles, the high fives, the winning and trying, the personal successes, and the celebration in the hearts of athletes, hosts, coaches, and volunteers.

Featuring bright colours and words in both English and Dakelh language, the language of the Lheidli T‘enneh, the brand is about that feeling of instant community. 

Spirit Lives Here – Njan tsen ghuna! It is an illustration of the northern spirit that Prince George is ready to put into the Games!
