Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic mascots

Graphic News

March 9-18, 2018 -- South Korea is hosting the 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Soohorang, a white tiger, and Bandabi, an Asiatic black bear, are the mascots of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

White tigers are a symbol of trust, strength and protection and have long been considered as Korea’s guardian animal. “Sooho” means protection in Korean. “Rang” is derived from middle letter of “Ho-rang-i” (Korean for “Tiger”) and last letter of “Jeong-seon A-ri-rang” (old folk song from Gangwon Province, where Games are held)

Black bears symbolise strong willpower, courage, warm-hearted. “Banda” comes from “ban-dal” (Korean word for half-moon) and “bi” stands for celebration of Games
