Called the “Bond of Peace and Friendship”, the logo is composed of the following elements: the “five-pointed stars”, a “peace dove”, a “colored ribbon”, and the number “7”.  “Five-pointed stars” highlights the characteristics of soldiers and the army, highly aligned with the symbolic meaning of the CISM World Games;

The seven “five-pointed stars” imply that soldiers from various countries gather in Wuhan to celebrate the event of peace under China’s proposal of “adhering to peaceful development and working to build a community with a shared future for mankind”;

A “peace dove” is found at a point of the first star in the upper end of the logo, implying that China will spread the concept of peaceful development to every corner of the world through this grand event.

 

 

The mascot is named “Bingbing”, with its design inspiration from Chinese sturgeon, an old fish species migrating in the Yangtze River Basin and the shallow sea outside the estuary of the Yangtze River. The mascot’s name “Bingbing” means soldier. The Chinese pronunciation is simple, catchy and easy to be promoted! With an anthropomorphic design that facilitates the extension of the modeling, the tenacious and strong mascot looks lively, lovely and smart, showing Wuhan’s hospitality and easily accepted and loved by peoples around the world. Its sunny and confident smile together with the modeling of open arms and moving forward symbolizes that China is willing to share friendship and promote peace with friends from all over the world in a more open, inclusive and hospitable approach.
