Bing Dwen Dwen

In Mandarin Chinese (the official dialect of China), “Bing” has several meanings, though the most common is ice. The word also symbolises purity and strength, while “Dwen Dwen” means robust and lively, and also represents children.

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 during the games from February 4 to 20, 2022.

Description
Bing Dwen Dwen wears a full-body “shell” made out of ice, which resembles an astronaut suit – a tribute to embracing new technologies for a future with infinite possibilities. The shell also helps the panda to skate, snowboard and ski alongside the Olympic athletes.

The bright colours of the halo around its face are a representation of the latest advanced technologies of the ice and snow sport tracks at the Games, while the heart on its left palm symbolises China’s hospitality for athletes and spectators at the Winter Olympics.

The design for Bing Dwen Dwen was chosen from over 5,800 submissions from China and 35 countries around the world as part of a global competition arranged by the Beijing 2022 Organising Committee. The designs were reviewed by Chinese and international experts, with the final selections made by teams from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and Jilin University of the Arts. The selection of an animated panda for Beijing 2022’s official mascot is not too surprising, as the giant panda is the national animal of China – not to mention that a panda was one of the five Fuwa mascots of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
