Bing Dwen Dwen
The Olympic mascot is called Bing Dwen Dwen. “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.
A cheerful panda will serve as an ambassador for winter sports, bringing joy to those who participate in and watch the Olympic Winter Games. Bing Dwen Dwen is encased in a full-body “shell” made of ice, and the heart shape in its left palm represents the host country’s hospitality. The bright colours of the halo around its face represent ice and snow sport tracks, signifying connectivity and advanced technologies
