One of the big hits of this summer's Pan Am and Parapan Am Games has been the multi-colour 3D Toronto sign located at Nathan Phillips Square.

It's inspired plenty of postcard-worthy shots like this.

The popular sign got a temporary edit on Thursday morning and paid tribute to the best three letter name around.

Sorry Kims, Jims and Toms. The sign doesn't lie. Ron is totally the best nom around.

Torontonians briefly panicked when they thought the beloved sign was being taken down but officials quickly clarified that the sign was just temporarily being moved for Saturday's closing ceremony of the Parapan Am Games and would be moved back to its original spot.

City councillor Norm Kelly even tweeted a photo of the sign's temporary spot on the east side of the square.

CTV has a great timelapse of the letters being moved around like it was a giant game of Scrabble.

The sign will be in Nathan Phillips Square until the end of the year.
