The mascot is a panda, called Bing Dwen Dwen, which symbolizes the endurance and willpower of the athletes. He is covered in an ice shell and the heart-shaped palm of his left hand symbolizes the hospitality of China.
Curious is that the games will take place during the Chinese New Year’s period, starting on February 1st and usually going on for about 15 days.
