Birmingham Airport has installed two sets of illuminated Olympic rings on its air traffic control tower to celebrate the London 2012 Games.
The two-metre diameter rings are visible from the road and the air.
Airport chief executive Paul Kehoe said he was proud to display them as "the Olympic Games are for the entire country, not just London."
The city will host Jamaican and US track and field teams and Coventry is hosting Olympic football competitions.
Mr Kehoe said: "The Midlands region will have a big role to play during the Olympic and Paralympic Games so we want everyone flying into Birmingham for the occasion to have a special welcome."
