2008 Beijing Olympic Mascots

The mascots for this year’s Olympic games are called Fuwa, or “good luck dolls”. The mascots are cartoon renditions of a panda, a fish, a Tibetan antelope, a bird and the Olympic flame. They are named Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying, and Nini.

Beibei is the fish representing the element water

Jingjing is the panda representing the forest

Huanhuan the Olympic flame represents the element fire

Yingying is the Tibetan Antelope representing the earth

Nini is the bird/swallow representing air

When their names are put together – Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni – they say “Welcome to Beijing”.
