Mascots of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics



Meet the cute talismans, representing

the winter Olympics Soohorang and Bandabi :)


Soohorang, the mascot of the Olympic Winter Games


PyeongChang 2018 took its motif from white tiger, which has

 been long considered Korea’s guardian animal! “Sooho”, means

 protection in Korean, “Rang” comes from the middle letter of

 “Ho-rang-i”, the Korean word for “Tiger”, and is also the last letter

 of “Jeong-seon A-ri-rang”,  a cherished traditional folk song of

 Gangwon province, where the Games will be held. Those two

words symbolize protection offered to the athletes, spectators

 and other participants in the 2018 Games.


Bandabi, the mascot of the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic

 Winter Games took its motif from the Asiatic black bear.

 The Asiatic black bear or “ban-dal-ga-seum-gom”

(the bear with a half-moon mark on the chest) symbolizes

 strong willpower and courage in the Korean folklore.

“Banda” is derived from “ban-dal,” the Korean word for the

 half-moon. “Bi” stands for celebration of the Games. Bandabi

 is awarm-hearted friend who takes the lead for

equality and harmony and encourages athletes

 to push themselves beyond their limits :)
