Designer: Kazumasa Nagai and Masayoshi Nakajo

In the Official Report from the 1972 Sapporo Games you will find
on page 411 that images, also many facilities symbols.

Designs created and coordinated by Design Technical Committee
1. The competition symbols
The symbols used to depict the sporting events in the Tokyo Games were adapted
for use in the Sapporo Olympics and new ones were designed, whenever necessary, to
depict winter sports. Mr. Yoshiro Yamashita was chosen as the artist.
2. Facilities symbols
Japan's artists already had experience in designing symbols to depict facilities on two
occasions—the Tokyo Olympics and the World Exposition. Mr. Shigeo Fukuda, who was in
charge of designing the symbols for Expo '70 was commissioned to adapt these for use in
the Sapporo Games.
