Winter Olympics are a magical event. They have it all: a myriad of disciplines, the suspense, the contrast between the calming snowy whiteness and the fiery performances of the athletes from all over the world.
The effort of everyone included in the preparation of this year postponed 2022 Winter Olympics yielded a true victory, especially under the COVID pandemic circumstances. And, even though the Winter Olympics success clearly did not come out of the blue, the Games certainly look better in blue.

The aesthetics of a prevailing white setting contrasted by the mesmerizing blue of a clear sky is the second dominant impression, right next to sportsmanship. Even looking at the photos from the events is breathtaking, just imagine how it all looks to those who experienced it first hand.
It's no wonder that winter blue, ice blue or Olympic blue, doesn't really matter how you call it, has often been an aha moment for artists and designers all over the world. For example, Olympic Blue in vintage 1973/74 Porsche is one of the most sought after finishes in any model coming from this renowned car manufacturer.
