BERLIN - The International Olympic Committee on Tuesday rejected Iran's complaint that the logo for the 2012 Olympics resembles the word Zion and is racist.

"The London 2012 logo represents the figure 2012, nothing else," the IOC said in a statement on Tuesday.

The London logo, launched in 2007, shows the numbers 2012 in four jagged figures.

Iran made the complaint in a letter to IOC president Jacques Rogge.
