The reason why they were discarded was caused by the strong allegations to ensure that the designs of the logos of the Olympic and Paralympic Games were plagiarized.

The organizing committee repeatedly assure they did not know the origin of the emblem, since the designer Kenjiro Sano admitted resorted to the Internet to copy several designs, however denied having plagiarized such a design.

The Belgian graphic artist Olivier Debie was the one who made the complaint to the Japanese media showing one of his works the Theatre of Liège logo alongside the logos of Tokyo 2020.

After these accusations the organizing committee at a press conference decided to eliminate the designs in all his campaigns including their headquarters and develop other emblem.
