The emblem for the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics was unveiled on 21 October 2019 at the Grand Rex.
Inspired by Art Deco, it is a representation of Marianne, the national personification of France, with a flame formed in negative space by her hair.
The emblem also resembles a gold medal. Tony Estanguet explained that the emblem symbolised “the power and the magic of the Games”, and the Games being “for people”.
The use of a female figure also serves as an homage to the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris, which were the first to allow women to participate.
The emblem was designed by the French designer Sylvain Boyer with the French design agencies Ecobranding & Royalties.

Paris was awarded the Games at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on 13 September 2017.
Due to multiple withdrawals that left only Paris and Los Angeles in contention, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved a process to concurrently award the 2024 and 2028 Summer Olympics to the two cities.
Having previously hosted in 1900 and 1924, Paris will become the second city to host the Summer Olympics three times after London (1908, 1948 and 2012).
The Games will mark the centenary of the Paris Games of 1924, and the sixth Olympic games hosted by France (three in summer and three in winter), and the first Olympic Games in France since the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville.

Most of the Olympic events will be held in the city of Paris and its metropolitan region, including the neighboring cities of Saint-Denis, Le Bourget, Nanterre, Versailles, and Vaires-sur-Marne.

Football will be hosted in six other cities, which are Marseille, Lyon, Saint-Étienne, Bordeaux, Nantes and Nice, in addition to Paris, with some of them were home to Ligue 1 clubs.
In July 2021, Paris 2024 president Tony Estanguet stated that the COJOP2024 was conducting a feasibility study on hosting the opening and closing ceremonies outside of a traditional stadium setting, so that they could “marry the best of Paris–the iconic sites–to the possibility of engaging with hundreds of thousands of people, maybe more.”
This concept of an “open Games” was exemplified in the Paris 2024 handover presentation during the Tokyo 2020 closing ceremony, which featured a live segment from a viewing party at Place du Trocadéro.
Estanguet expected the sites for the ceremonies to be announced by the end of the year.
This upcoming international multi-sport event scheduled to take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024 with Paris as its main host city and 16 cities spread across Metropolitan France and one in the French overseas territory of Tahiti as subsites.

Paris, Hamburg, Budapest, Rome, and Los Angeles were the five candidate cities. The process was slowed by withdrawals, political uncertainty, and deterring costs.
Hamburg withdrew its bid on 29 November 2015 after holding a referendum.
Rome withdrew on 21 September 2016 citing fiscal difficulties. On 22 February 2017, Budapest withdrew after a petition against the bid collected more signatures than necessary for a referendum.
