The Olympic Games has a series of unique and distinctive symbolic symbols, such as the Olympic logo, motto, the Olympic flag, the song, the emblem, sport medal of honor, the mascot, etc. These symbols have rich cultural meanings and vividly reflect the value orientation of the Olympic and cultural connotations.
The Olympic Five Rings logo, which consists of five Olympic rings with five colors: blue, black, red, yellow and green. The meaning of the five rings is to symbolize the unity of the five continents and the athletes all over the world meet at the Olympic Games with fairness, frankness and friendly spirit.
The flag was designed by Coubertin in 1913, it is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide. In 1914, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the restoration of the modern Olympic movement, it was first raised at the Olympic Congress in Paris. The Antwerp Olympic Games officially adopted it in 1920. Above the Olympic flag is the OlympicFive Rings logo.
Olympic Motto is also known as the Olympic slogan. The Olympic Movement has a famous motto: "Citius, Altius, Fortius." This motto is from a friend of Coubertin, Henri Didon, Dean of Paris Aquile, who encouraged his students at an outdoor sports event. “Here, your slogan is: faster, higher, stronger.”
Coubertin borrowed to use this sentence for the Olympic movement. He once made his own understanding of this:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
In 1920, the International Olympic Committee officially confirmed that "Swifter, Higher, Stronger" was the Olympic motto and was first used in the 1920 Antwerp Olympic Games. The Olympic motto fully expresses the spirit of continuous progress and unsatisfied struggle advocated by the Olympic Movement. Although there are only six short words, the meaning is very rich. It not only means that dare to fight with others and pursue champion, but also encourages people to be unwilling to be mediocre in their own life and work. Always be vigorous and enterprising.
In the history of the Olympics, the mascot first appeared at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Since then, the mascot has become the main component of the Olympic Games. In the art form of the mascot, before the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, most of the mascots of the Olympic Games were based on the national animal image, which was generally a species. After 1992, the Olympic mascot appeared as a character, or a completely virtual form, and the number also changed. There were 4 kinds of mascots for the 1998 Winter Olympics. Two kinds of mascots for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, and 5 mascots for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The basic core of mascot is to help express the theme of the current Olympic Games. It is conducive to the unique geographical characteristics, historical culture and humanistic characteristics of the host city, and is conducive to market development and protection.
The modern Olympic Games produced a variety of mascots. Each mascot is unique, and they all have a vibrant character that reflects the Olympic ideal of friendship and fair play.
