Mascot Beijing 2008: Beibei the fish

In traditional Chinese culture, fish and water are symbols of prosperity, which herald good harvests. Beibei, who is blue, represents the sea and the blue Olympic ring. It is therefore only natural that he excels in aquatic sports. The ornamental lines and other waves decorating his headgear are typical motifs in traditional Chinese painting <br /><br />©IOC
