13th Paralympic Games: Beijing 2008

[The Beijing 2008 Paralympic flag]
by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, Aug. 2008

Dubbed "Sky, Earth and Human Beings," the emblem of the Beijing Paralympics is a stylized figure of an athlete in motion, implying the tremendous efforts a disabled person has to make in sports as well as in real life. With the unity and the harmony of "sky, earth and human beings," the emblem incorporates Chinese characters, calligraphy and the Paralympic spirit. It embodies the Paralympic motto of "Spirit in Motion" and reflects the integration of heart, body and spirit in human beings - the core of the philosophy of Chinese culture. The three colours in the emblem represent the sun (red), the sky (blue) and the earth (green).

The XI Paralympic Winter Games are being held one month later than Sochi Winter Olympics, between 07 and 16 March 2014.
The logo for the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games follows the same typography as the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games emblem, and incorporates the Paralympic Symbol, the three Agitos in red, blue and green, symbolising the fact that Paralympic athletes are constantly inspiring and exciting the world with their performances, always moving forward and never giving up. Letters of web address are light blue with blue contours. This logo was also introduced in December 2009.
