  The Look

butterfly The Colours of Malaysia, so rich, beautiful and inviting, serve to captivate all who behold it. The concept, taken from Malaysia's colours of nature and its people, is reflected in the butterfly, with its many different shapes and shades of colours.

Derived from the nature, culture and architecture of Malaysia, the Look of the Kuala Lumpur 98 - XVI Commonwealth Games is themed 'Wonder and Splendour', based on the motif of the Malay roof, batik and celebration of colours from the country's abundant natural wonders.

The colourful wing-patterns of the butterflies have been adapted, refined and simplified to be intermingled with the batik motif. This is depicted in the colours and shapes which have a fluid, flowing movement.

Beginning from the pupa stage and then to the amazing transformation into a butterfly, the Look represents the blossoming of the Commonwealth Games dream in Kuala Lumpur.

The marvel of colour is parallel to our joy and pride in spreading the festivity as we progress on this journey towards the Games.

In addition, the butterfly motif also complements the Games logo, which has its conception rooted in the Malaysian national flower - the Hibiscus.
