Two art-deco posters of Paris were revealed to promote the event, displayed on billboards across the capital. But Right-wing critics in France have spoken out against the 'woke' designs.

Amidst growing discontent with the government's potential plans, which have been criticized as a Saudi 'Olympic village' being built on the grounds of Les Invalides, both conservatives and liberals are expressing their anger. This comes after one of Emmanuel Macron's ministers confirmed that Paris was considering Riyadh's request to create a national pavilion in the heart of the military complex. The complex is home to various army and Legion of Honour museums, as well as a hospital for wounded soldiers. The courtyard is also used for state memorial ceremonies and funerals. The Paris Olympics are scheduled to take place from July 26 to August 11, followed by the Paralympics from August 28 to September 8.
