Mascot

The Mascot is Bing Dwen Dwen.  “Bing” is the Chinese character for ice and symbolises purity and strength, and “Dwen Dwen”means robust and lively and also represents children.  Bing Dwen Dwen is an animated giant panda as the giant panda is the national treasure of China.  It embodies the strength and willpower of athletes and will help promote the Olympic spirit.  (IOC, 2021)

Emblem

The emblem is inspired by “”, a Chinese character for winter, to combine traditional Chinese culture and Olympic elements.   It resembles a skater at the top and a skier at the bottom.   The flowing ribbon-like motif between them symbolises the host country’s rolling mountains, Olympic venues, ski pistes and skating rinks.  It also points to the fact that the Games will coincide with the Chinese New Year.  The use of blue in the emblem represents dreams, the future and the purity of ice and snow, while red and yellow – the colours of China’s national flag – symbolise passion, youth and vitality.  (IOC, 2021)

Winter Paralympics

The Beijing Winter Paralympics are scheduled to take place from 4th to 13th March 2022 and Beijing will also be the first city to host both the summer and winter Paralympics.  The athletes will compete in 78 different events across feature six sports (Para Alpine Skiing, Para Biathlon, Para Cross-Country Skiing, Para Snowboard, Para Ice Hockey and Wheelchair Curling). The mascot "Shuey Rhon Rhon” (雪容融) is a Chinese lantern child.  The full name of the mascot promotes the desire of having greater inclusion for people with impairments throughout society, and more dialogue and understanding between the cultures of the world. (IOC, 2021)

The official emblem of the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games is 'Leaps', artfully transforms “” which is the Chinese character for ‘fly’.  The emblem is created by artist Lin Cunzhen and is designed to invoke the image of an athlete in a wheelchair pushing toward the finish line and victory. The emblem also personifies the Paralympics vision of enabling Para athletes to 'achieve sporting excellence and inspire and excite the world'. (IOC, 2021)
