The 2019 Pan American Games, officially the XVIII Pan American Games or the 18th Pan American Games, is a major international multi-sport event that is scheduled to be held from July 26 to August 11, 2019, in Lima, Peru.
The official logo of the 2019 Pan American Games is inspired by an indigenous flower that flourished from June 24 thru September 30, called: Flower of Amancaes. The flower and its pistils represent three athletes with open arms and the three Americas, with the identity of Lima.
A total of four bids were submitted for the 2019 Pan American Games. Lima was elected as the host city on October 11, 2013 where PASO members gathered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to elect the host city.
