QUEEN’S BATON RELAY

The baton’s journey symbolizes the unity and shared ideals of the Commonwealth of Nations, and
enables communities beyond the Host City to share the celebrations of the Games. It also serves a
functional purpose in carrying Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s ‘message to the athletes’ from
Buckingham Palace in London to the opening ceremony of the Games.

The Queen’s Baton Relay 2010 Delhi commenced from Buckingham Palace, London, on the
October 29, 2009. The baton travels through all other 70 Commonwealth nations – a
historic journey covering a distance of more than 170,000 kms in 240 days. On its
100 day national tour, the baton will visit the capital of each of India’s 28 states and
seven union territories, plus many other cities along the way, covering more than
20,000 kms. By the end of its journey, the baton will have traversed over 190,000
kms in 340 days, making the Queen’s Baton Relay 2010 Delhi one of the longest
relays in the history of the Commonwealth Games.

The baton will also have passed through thousands of hands, and travelled by
different modes of transport across land, air and sea. The relay will conclude after
the final baton bearer enters the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium during the Opening
Ceremony of the XIX Commonwealth Games on October 3, 2010 where Her Majesty’s
message will be removed from the baton and read aloud, officially opening the
Games.

Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi

The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi was unveiled at a spectacular cultural show held at India Gate in New
Delhi on March 8, 2009. The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi is a combination of handcrafted excellence and
precision engineering; it’s a true symbol of India, a blend of its ancient roots and present vibrant,
modern identity. It is also representative of India’s diversity – the baton’s colour scheme showcases
‘soils’ from every corner of the country, a rich palette ranging from white sands to yellow clay, deep
reds to dark browns and an array of other hues.

The shape and design of the baton has been created using a
triangular section of aluminium which is twisted in the form of
a helix and coated with soil in a graduating pattern. The
interweaving of coloured soils, including white sands, deep
reds, warm yellows, dark browns and an array of other hues
creates a very distinctive design, form and texture never before
seen in the styling of a Queen’s Baton. The very essence of
India with its diversity and unrelenting endeavour towards a
harmonious and progressive nation has shaped the inspiration
of the baton.

31
The Queen’s message has been symbolically engraved onto a miniature 18 carat gold leaf,
representative of the ancient Indian ‘pathras’. The gold leaf inscription reflects the essence and the
richness of culture in ancient India. Modern laser technology known as micro calligraphy has been used
for the first time to reproduce the Queen’s message in this style. The Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi stands
at 664 millimetres high and is 34 millimetres wide at the base, and 86 millimetres wide at the top and
weighs a mere 1,900 grams.

The baton’s ergonomic contours allow for convenient holding and good balance. The Queen’s Baton
2010 Delhi technology features include:

The ability to capture images and sound as it travels throughout all nations of the

Tradition

The Queen’s Baton Relay is one of the great traditions of the Commonwealth Games, having been the
curtain-raiser to every Games since Cardiff in 1958. The relay symbolises the gathering of people from
across the Commonwealth at the four-yearly festival of sport and culture.

The relay traditionally begins with a commencement ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London, which
coincides with the city’s Commonwealth Day festivities. There Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II entrusts
the baton containing Her ‘message to the athletes’ to the first honourary relay runner.

The relay concludes at the Opening Ceremony as the final relay runner hands the baton back to Her
Majesty, or Her representative, and the message is read aloud. At that moment the relay ends and the
Games begin.

Over the years the Queen’s Baton Relay has evolved into a powerful symbol of the unity and diversity
of the Commonwealth of Nations. With each Games the tradition grows in scale and significance –
including more nations, involving more participants and generating more excitement than ever before.

32
The Kuala Lumpur 1998 Queen’s Baton Relay was the first to deliver the relay to other nations of the
Commonwealth, besides England and the host country. The Manchester 2002 Queen’s Jubilee Baton
travelled more than 100,000 kms in 87 days, and visited 23 Commonwealth nations.

The Melbourne 2006 Queen’s Baton travelled an epic journey of more than 180,000 kms in a year and
a day, and visited all 71 nations of the Commonwealth. The Melbourne 2006 Queen’s Baton Relay was
the world`s longest, most inclusive relay. No other Games relay has visited all member nations.

33
VOLUNTEERS PROGRAMME – DELHI UNITED
Delhi United, the OC CWG Delhi 2010’s Volunteer
Programme, is aimed at encouraging every citizen –
regardless of age, creed or occupation – to engage with and
participate in making the Games a success. The innovative
programme is expected to leave behind an invaluable legacy
of trained- both technical and non-technical volunteers. Delhi
United will give the volunteers an opportunity to make their
nation proud by showcasing Indian hospitality and ethos,
enhance their interest in sports knowledge, work with an
international team of experts, and build lasting friendships
with people from across the world.

The XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi will rely for its
success on the support of 30,000 volunteers. They in true spirit of the Games will come forward
selflessly to contribute towards a truly spectacular event guaranteeing unforgettable memories for our
guests! The volunteers will forge lasting friendships and gain invaluable experiences. Without
volunteers, the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi would be impossible.

The Programme is responsible for the recruitment, screening, selection, assignment, engagement and
retention of all volunteers to be engaged by Delhi 2010 prior to, during and post Games. Delhi United
also pays an important role in promoting and reinforcing the OC CWG 2010 Delhi’s core culture.

Delhi United Logo Story

Emanating from the spirit of joy and togetherness, the Delhi United logo symbolises unity and
optimism. It captures the essence of the “wheel of life” which defines confidence and aspirations to
attain excellence. The values of honesty, brotherhood and team work, also the core of the programme,
are explicitly brought out through the elements used in the logo. The colours have been meticulously
selected and truly describe the philosophy of Delhi United. Red signifies energy, enthusiasm and
passion. Yellow stands for optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the
promise of a positive future. White projects purity, cleanliness, and neutrality.

34
The Volunteer’s Journey

A volunteer’s journey is quite adventurous – a mix of excitement, satisfaction, and social recognition. It
starts with the will to help and leads to inspiring and motivating many others. At D2010, the journey is
no less exhilarating: it starts with a simple application and leads to you becoming a part of India’s
sporting history and an unparalleled legacy

The Role of a Volunteer

The volunteers associated with Delhi 2010 will be grouped into three categories based on the location
of their accommodation during the Games, as well as their availability, skills and experience. Where
possible, their preference will also be considered.

Generalist volunteers who will not require special skills or aptitude. They will need outstanding
dedication, and a commitment on time and availability. They will be working across the
majority of Functional Areas such as Accommodation, Transport, Accreditation and
Communication.
Specialised volunteers who will have specialist knowledge, skills or qualifications in fields such
as Medical, Technology, Language and Hospitality/Protocol in addition to commitment and
availability.
Targeted volunteers will primarily constitute the sport volunteers who will be nominated by the
national sports bodies along with the Sports Authority of India and security volunteers sourced
from the National Cadet Corps (NCC) and the National Service Scheme (NSS).

COMMONWEALTH BUSINESS CLUB INDIA

The Commonwealth Business Club India (CBCI) is a strategic partnership between the Organising
Committee Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 and the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce
and Industry (FICCI). CBCI is directed to establish and achieve the aims of the parent organizations, and
to encourage and support the Indian Business Community’s involvement and the marketing and
promotion of Indian sports. It is to raise sports’ sponsorships and market India as the preferred
business partner and destination across the Commonwealth nations.

The CBCI is chaired by Suresh Kalmadi – member of Parliament, India and Chairman of the Organising
Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. The CBCI will act as a platform to bring together
domestic and international apex business organizations and businesses during the run-up to the
Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. The CBCI also aims to draw high power offshore business
delegations to India during the Games and enable them to leverage the unfolding opportunity of
transacting business and enjoy the Games.

The launch of CBCI comes at an opportune time for the business communities within the
Commonwealth countries due to the positive economic impact of the Games. To site some recent
examples: The Commonwealth Games 2002 Manchester created an impact of nearly $ 3400 million
on the country’s GDP while the Commonwealth Games 2006 Melbourne created an impact of $ 1600
million on the GDP of Australia. It is estimated that the Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi would
result in an overall economic impact on India over a period of 2008-2012 of approximately $ 4940
million - nearly three times that of Australia.

Furthermore, the Games are expected to create an enormous employment opportunity of close to
2.47 million jobs, which is much larger than Manchester and Melbourne. The social and environmental
impact of the Games are highly laudable as they encourage improved standards of education to
children, boost sports activities, create better quality of life and experience for citizens, increase
international recognition and create environmental consciousness among the community.

The CBCI was, for the first time, unveiled on October 29, 2009 at Royal Courts of Justice, London by
Hon’ble Minister of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India, Dr. M.S. Gill. This was followed by its
launch in Birmingham earlier this month during the reception of the Queen’s Baton Relay ( QBR ) Delhi
2010 in partnership with Birmingham City Council.

SHERA – THE MASCOT

Shera, mascot of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi, is the most
visible face of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. His name comes
from the Hindi word Sher – meaning tiger. Shera truly represents the
modern Indian. He is an achiever with a positive attitude, a global citizen
but justifiably proud of his nation’s ancient heritage, a fierce competitor
but with integrity and honesty. Shera is also a ‘large-hearted gentleman’
who loves making friends and enthusing people to ‘come out and play’.

In Indian mythology, the tiger is associated with Goddess Durga, the


embodiment of Shakti (or female power) and vanquisher of evil. She rides
her powerful vehicle – the tiger – into combat, especially in her epic and
victorious battle against Mahishasur, a dreaded demon.

Shera embodies values that the nation is proud of power, charisma,


intelligence and grace. His athletic prowess, courage and speed on the
field are legendary. He is also a reminder of the fragile environment he
lives in and our responsibility towards the protection of his eco-system.

THE LOOK

The logo for the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi is inspired by the
‘Chakra’, the national symbol of freedom, unity and power. Spiraling upwards,
it depicts the growth of India into a proud, vibrant nation. Her billion people
coming together to fulfill their true destinies. Indias journey from tradition to
modernity, her economic transformation into a super power reaching out to
the world and leading the way, even as she enthusiastically embraces all the
71 CGA nations and territories of the Commonwealth to become one and host
the best ever Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

Colour Palette:
The colour palette for Delhi 2010 look programme combines two of the distinctive colours of the Delhi
2010 emblem with the official colours of the Commonwealth Games.

Green: The colour that signifies life, energy and high spirits also represents the fact that Delhi 2010 will
be the first-ever Green Games. With a spring in your step, face every challenge and overcome hurdles
with radiance and gusto.

41
Purple: Combining the stable and calming aspects of blue with the mystical qualities of pink, this colour
satisfies the need for reassurance, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement.

Red, Yellow and Blue: Commonwealth Games colours, representing the ‘Trinity of Values’ that
symbolise the games; unifying humanity (red) giving all athletes a chance to realise their destiny
(yellow) and promoting equality (blue).

Pink: This colour has also been introduced to the palette adding an element of surprise and luxury to
the Games look programme. It plays to the crowd and truly reflects India in all its resplendent glory.

Come Out and Play:


The logo tagline is in an invitation to every person across all divides – Indian and Commonwealth to let
go of themselves and participate in the Games to the best of their abilities, in the true spirit of the
Games. It is an exhortation to them to set new records, to outperform, and to raise the bar by scaling
new peaks of achievement. It is also a call to the people of India, especially Delhi, to come out in
support of the Games and play the perfect hosts at the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi.

PEL HIGH DEMAND TICKETS FOR THE MEDIA

While it is anticipated that Delhi 2010 will be able to meet media demand for access at most venues
and at the MPC, some sessions will experience a high level of demand due to a combination of capacity
and anticipated media interest. These sessions have been identified below. To control numbers at
venues and to ensure equity of access for all media, a policy requiring members of the media to be
ticketed at these sessions is necessary.

Tickets will only be issued to the media for high demand sessions known as PEL (Prime Event
Limitation) events which are:
- Opening Ceremony
- Closing Ceremony

Additional sessions may also be added when the need occurs. These will be communicated to the
media if required.

Tickets will be issued to written press, photographers and ENR

Tickets for high demand sessions need to be applied for in advance through the Delhi 2010 Press
Operations Functional area. Tickets will then be allocated by the Delhi 2010 Press Operations FA in
consultation with Delhi 2010 Communications FA, depending on a priority list that is generally based
on the readership of the agencies/publications.

After Press Operations FA receives the application form back from the media, Delhi 2010 Press
Operations FA and Delhi 2010 Ticketing will review the demand for each session and where necessary,
may decide to ticket additional sessions.

The Delhi 2010 Ticketing FA will print the appropriate tickets and provide them to Delhi 2010 Press
Operations at least two days prior to the session. All tickets will then be held by the Delhi 2010 Press
Operations FA in a secure area and only made available to the media a day before the particular day of
the tournament. Collection point will be located at the Main Press Centre.

To combat the problem of empty seats due to no shows, Delhi 2010 Press Operations FA will stress in
all correspondence that if the tickets are not collected before 4pm the day prior to the event at the
MPC will be distributed by the Venue Media Manager at the particular Venue Media Centre on a first
come first serve basis.

During non PEL sessions (i.e. all sessions not listed above), the media will only need their accreditation
to gain entry into the accredited media sections within the venue. Access into these areas will be
managed by Press Operations staff together with Security (i.e. access control monitors).

September 2010 – 13 November 2010 (i.e one month before and one month after the Games) upon
presentation of the card and a valid passport and have their NVP validated.

the details on the passport match those on the Accreditation Application Form.

NVP is issued following the successful completion of the background security check.

if an individual wants his/her NVP to be validated at their respective Accreditation centers then this can
be done in the following facilities:

authorized representative of the CGA, who must then inform Delhi 2010 Accreditation Department in writing.

his/her own arrangements to enter the country Upon arrival to India, he/she should go to one of the
aforementioned locations (Step 4b) in order to be issued with a valid Accreditation Card

Help Office (VAHO) or the respective Accreditation Centre to fill out an application for loss of the
Accreditation Card.

issued in accordance with the proper procedure for a Day Pass. This will serve as a temporary solution enabling
the applicant to carry out his/her responsibilities.

representative, or the manager of D2010 functional Area applicants organization belongs to, so that a new card

Accreditation Centre. Accreditation Cards will only be re-issued at the Media Accreditation Centre where the
applicants must attend in person to collect the new card. Every accredited person must carry their Accreditation
card which must be visible at all times. Access to all Games venues will be controlled at the access control

photographs taken in a venue will be used for editorial purposes only. In all other instances,
photographers must seek the express and prior written authorization of the Organising Committee,
Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi.

PHOTOGRAPHERS’ CODE OF CONDUCT


Accredited Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games photographers are required to comply with the
Photographers’ Code of Conduct as a condition of their accreditation. A form of consent has to be
signed upon the activation of their accreditation. In the event that any photographer breaches this
‘Code of Conduct’ the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee may suspend,
withdraw, revoke and/or cancel a photographer’s accreditation.

Obligations

• To enter a Delhi 2010 venue, photographers need a valid accreditation pass. In addition to the
accreditation pass, a bib is required to be worn when working in the competition venues,
including the seating bowl and field of play photo positions. The bibs must be worn on the
outside of clothing and must be clearly visible at all times. The bibs are specific and identified by
a number. All photographers will have a black bib, infield and/or pool photographers will be
equipped with a red bib by the respective photo manager.

Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi on the occasion of the conduction of the Games are to be
used for editorial publications only and not for commercial or advertising purposes.

• Flash equipment or strobes may not be used in a competition venue without the specific
agreement of the Photo Manager/Photo Supervisor and the competition manager.

• Tripods cannot be used to designate or hold positions for photographers. Photographers are
encouraged to use portable monopods in all locations.

may be allowed to work from unoccupied spectator seats in other areas, provided they do not
obstruct or disturb other spectators or restrict their views and they adhere to venue rules and
regulations as well as to the Code of Conduct published on the Commonwealth Games 2010
Delhi-website.

In either case, photographers have to obey the directives of the Venue Photo
Managers/Supervisors, e. g. that photography is only allowed seating at certain photo position
and not standing up.

Photographers may be marshalled to these positions and monitored by the Venue Photo
Manager or his assistants.

Accreditation privileges will be removed from photographers causing obstructions to spectators


or anyway breaking the rules mentioned above.

• For access to an event with Prime Event Limitation (PEL), a ticket is required in conjunction with
the accreditation pass and bib. These tickets must be collected by the photographer at the

Photographers wishing to access these positions during the Commonwealth Games must sign a
form which outlines the terms and conditions of access. With his signature, the photographer
accepts the inherent risk of injury or death. A proof of personal accident insurance, either in
form of a writing in English language from the photographer’s employer or as a valid copy of

riding as a pillion passenger on a motorbike or the rear of a flatbed truck.

Certain venues require photographers to complete their venue specific training on harness use.
The Venue Photo Manager/Supervisor owns the right to deny access in case this training has
not been completed or a dedicated photo position is deemed unsafe due to high wind etc.

• Generally, photographers must remain behind TV cameras at all times. Photographers must
remain in the designated area during medal ceremonies and not obstruct the TV cameras.
Obstruction of TV cameras may result in the suspension, withdrawal, revocation and/or
cancellation of accreditation.

• To enter the International Zone of the Games Village, a Media Pass will be handed over in
exchange with a valid accreditation pass at the media work area of the Games Village. To
regulate access to the International Zone, the number of Media Passes is limited to 100 for
written press and 100 for broadcast. In case of interest exceeding these numbers, access can

The Games News Service is an internal news agency which collects, creates and publishes a range of
Games-related news and data on Games Information System (GIS).
GIS is an essential resource providing timely, factual and accurate material for accredited media,
broadcasters, sponsors, athletes, national delegations and the broader Games Family, which relies on
the Games News Service for comprehensive coverage of the events and sporting competitions and
many other aspects of the Commonwealth Games. The Games News Service team consists of
professional sports writers and specialists, researchers, editors, media volunteers and associated
personnel.

What the Games News Service Will Provide


The articles prepared and published by the Games News Service include daily previews and reviews,
competition previews and reviews, flash quotes from athletes and coaches, Media Conference
highlights, stories about specific athletes and other media communications. The Games News Service
will also provide a range of additional background information, such as athlete biographies, medal
tallies, statistics, historical information and general Games news such as weather, transport,
attendances etc. Any errors in information produced by the Games News Service which requires
updating or amendment will be corrected as soon as possible and the revised versions marked
‘CORRECTED’.

Games News Service Operation

channel it back through a central editorial team located at the Main Press Centre. A Games News
Service team will be based at every competition venue, managed by a Games News Service Team
Leader and Sports Information Specialist; the team will also consist of News Service Reporters and
Flash Quote Reporters.
