The designer of this poster, Wilhelm Jaruska (Austrian, 1916-2008) “stylised a skate, a common feature of winter sports…[to symbolize] all the disciplines found in the Winter Games: a ski run, a sledge or bobsleigh and the blade of a skate. The white rectangle on the tip makes the “I” of Innsbruck. On the right, in the background, the coloured peaks symbolize the Tyrolean mountains.” Ref: Olympic Movement.
