An inukshuk, a Canadian Inuit symbol used as an overland navigation tool in the Arctic, is seen towering over Vancouver's English Bay.
The Vancouver 2010 emblem, named Ilanaaq, was chosen by an international judging panel from more than 1,600 entries from every region of Canada.
But some First Nations indigenous leaders have said the symbol lacks influence from native cultures of the Vancouver region, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
"The First Nations community at large is disappointed with the selection," Chief Stewart Phillip, president of the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs, told the CBC in 2005. "The decision-makers have decided not to reflect the First Nations and the Pacific region in the design of the logo.
"I can't help but notice the remarkable resemblance it has to Pac-Man," Phillip added.
Phillip, who is boycotting what he called the "Disneyesque" opening ceremony, also told NPR in February 2010 that the Vancouver 2010 games are taking place on land that rightfully belongs to indigenous people.
