Photo: Ilanaaq Inukshuk 2010 Olympic Winter Games Emblem

There's no missing the large inukshuk - Ilanaaq, the emblem for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, which towers above the entrance of the Whistler Olympic Park Nordic Sports Venue.

The Vancouver 2010 emblem which features as a graphic on every 2010 Olympic Winter Games sign, also appears at various Olympic venues built out of rocks.

The Inuit people of the arctic regions in Canada have stacked rocks into the human form to create inukshuks for centuries. These inukshuks act as markers in the tundra where few natural landmarks exist.

The 2010 Olympic Winter Games Emblem which is a contemporary interpretation of the inukshuk is called Ilanaaq which means friend in Inuktitut.

The huge stone inukshuks dotted around the various Olympic venues including the one at the entrance to the Whistler Olympic Park Nordic Sports Venue, in the Callaghan Valley, act as a gesture to greet the world to the Canada Games in 2010.
