The South American Games Flag. The shades of blue of the logo may vary - sometimes its a darker shade and sometimes its this lighter shade. The continent of South America should be visible in against the blue globe. The first 2 editions of these games were known as Los Juegos de Cruz del Sur (The Southern Cross Games).

Picture taken on March 23, 2010, outside a hotel where some athletes were staying.

The flag of the IX Games held in Medellín, is a white horizontal flag with the logo (http://2.bp.blogspot.com) on the middle, as seen in this image: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Medellin-2010.jpg

The Games logo was a proposal among 120 that were submitted, and it was officially awarded on December 3, 2009 to María Paulina Escobar Soto, 22, who was at the time studying her 8th Semester of Graphic Communication and Publicity at the Universidad de Medellín. She was awarded a prize of $15 million pesos (USD 7,500). The design was based on the infinity symbol (called lemniscate in math): ∞.

Also, even though the games were officially inaugurated on March 19, 2010 (as the poster in this image shows: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archivo:Seminario_Periodismo_Deportivo.jpg) there were some events that were held as early as March 17.
