It is the theme slogan of the Beijing Olympics. One World One Dream fully expresses the universal values of the Olympic Spirit - Unity, Friendship, Progress, Harmony, Participation and Dream.

The Official Mascots of the Beijing Olympics are five aptly and fondly called FUWA. What is fuwa?. Fuwa was designed as five ( colors of the Olympic rings) playful children who are friends. Fuwa also embody the natural characteristics of four of China's most popular animals -- the Fish, the Panda, the Tibetan Antelope, the Swallow -- and the Olympic Flame.

Beibei Jingjing Huanhuan Yingying Nini

Why the rhyming two-syllable names? In China, and in some Asian countries too, is a traditional way of expressing fondness to children. There must a bigger picture presented hidden in the chosen names of the Fuwa. Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni actually means Welcome to Beijing.

  1. Very interesting to read...and the mascots are cute!

    Pagaling ka. Naku ikaw nga 5 yang pinalaki mo...ako isa lang di ko alam minsan kung pano papalakihin.

    Asan na ang iyong anak? Inuwi mo ba? Hopefully after ng trip nyo sa doktor eh alam na nyang kailangan nya talagang mag breakfast. Ayayay....

    Get well!
