The official emblems for the 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games were unveiled on 15 December 2017 at the National Aquatics Center in Beijing.[1] Beijing will be the first Olympic and Paralympic city to host both summer and winter editions.

The Olympic logo, called 'Winter Dream' is a stylised version of the Chinese character '冬' which is 'winter'.

  • It emulates the forms of a skater (on top) and a skier (beneath).
  • The ribbon motif portrays the rolling mountains of China; where the athletes will compete.
  • It's firework-esque form also notes the games will coincide with Chinese New Year celebrations.
  • The colour scheme is symbolic of dreams, the future and purity in blue, and the colours of the Chinese flag. (red and yellow)
  • The typeface of the logo calls back the calligraphic heritage of China.

The Paralympic logo, named 'Flying High' also incorporates an abstracted Chinese character; '飞' meaning 'fly', emulating the form of a wheelchair-bound athlete surging towards a finish line.

On September 6, 2020, the Paralympic logo was updated to match the new logo standards set by Paris 2024, Milan-Cortina 2026 and Los Angeles 2028.[2] The refreshed Agitos symbol by North was added and the text "Paralympic Games" text was removed.
