The logo for the 2016 Olympics will be unveiled for the first time at Rio's traditional New Year's celebrations.
It will be shown just moments before the fireworks at Copacabana beach and the rest of the city are set to go off at midnight on Friday.
Top local officials and members of the International Olympic Committee will be at Copacabana to witness the event, along with nearly two million tourists and Rio residents expected for the New Year's Eve party at the famous beach, according to authorities.
The logo is expected to be displayed at 10 p.m. local time (1300 GMT), projected on to a huge screen on the sand.
Rio won the right in 2009 to host the Olympics, beating Madrid, Tokyo and Chicago.
