The Rome 2024 Olympic bid logo includes the Colosseum drawn in the colors of the Italian flag.

The logo was unveiled Monday, the same day Rome was announced as the first Italian host of the Ryder Cup in 2022.

Rome, which hosted the 1960 Games, is bidding to host the 2024 Olympics against Budapest, Los Angeles and Paris. International Olympic Committee members will vote to choose the host city in September 2017.

The Colosseum could be involved if Rome hosts the Games again.

The marathon route sets up to wind through St. Peter’s Square and finish under the Arch of Constantine in front of the Colosseum, according to The Associated Press citing the bid chairman in September.
