Chicago Olympic Logo

CHICAGO (AP) -- City officials today are expected to unveil Chicago's second attempt at an Olympic logo for its 2016 Summer Games bid.

In May, the International Olympic Committee said Chicago couldn't use its first design, which depicted the city's skyline shaped liked the Olympic torch.

The IOC said its rules don't allow logos to contain Olympic symbols like the motto or flag and other imagery such as a medal or torch.

The committee has received formal applications from cities including Madrid, Spain; Prague, Czech Republic; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Tokyo.

The committee will chose the host city October 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
