Thanks to readers a new set of media pins has been added to the catalogue. There are a number of broadcast pins, which can use the official marks, and press pins, which cannot.
From the BBC (the UK Olympic Broadcaster) comes a gold version of the white pin seen already. We're told that the gold version is for accredited staff only.
Channel 4 (the UK Paralympic Broadcaster) have issued 3 pins all combining the C4 and Paralympic Games logo.
From the international broadcast and press companies we have a range of pins which tend to draw on London's skyline and icons.
Germany's ARD/2DF use the Olympic rings and London skyline
Australia's Channel 9 have issued 8 pins. There are 2 designs available in all for London 2012 brand colours - pink, orange, blue and green. One of the designs combines the London 2012 logo with that of Channel 9, and the other design adds in the London skyline.
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) also use the skyline while Foxtel (USA) and SVT (Sweden) make use of the London 2012 logo
Finally, USA Today use sporting pictograms, Big Ben and the British flag to show the London connection for their pin.
