The Olympic mascot will be Bing Dwen Dwen. The new Olympic mascot will serve as an ambassador for winter sports, bringing joy to those who participate in and watch the Olympic Winter Games. “Bing” means ice and also symbolises purity and strength, and “Dwen Dwen” represents children. The mascot embodies the strength and willpower of athletes and will help to promote the Olympic spirit.
The Olympic torch is an iconic part of any Games, with each competition providing their own unique touch to the design. The torch for Beijing 2022 – bearing the name ‘Flying’ (飞扬 Fei Yang) – is no exception.
Beijing is the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. The design of the 2022 torch honours the Olympic legacy in the Chinese capital by featuring a similar design to the cauldron of the 2008 Olympic Games, which looked like a giant scroll.
