Mediterranean Games

The Mediterranean Games, organised every four years, stand as the greatest sport event of the Mediterranean region, attracting the interest of the maritime countries (nations bordering the Mediterranean Sea), where Europe, Africa and Asia meet.

The Mediterranean Games, held under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, fall within the competence of the Hellenic Olympic Committee, in terms of the preparation and composition of the National Delegation, precisely as for the Olympic Games.

Athens is the permanent seat of the ICMG (irrespective of who the President might be) and the Committee’s General Secretary is Greek.

The logo of the games, called also the “Mediterranean Olympics”, is composed of three white rings symbolically representing Africa, Asia, and Europe, the three continents that have coast on the Mediterranean Sea, reflecting themselves in the blue color of the sea.

In Africa: Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia
In Asia: Lebanon, Syria, Turkey
In Europe: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cyprus, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain.
