It’s gone quite… But Pyeongchang 2018 is about to get loud again. Paralympic Winter Games 9th – 19th March
And we’ll see a lot of this guy, Bandabi – The Paralympic Mascot.
The bear is symbolic of strong will and courage. The Asiatic Black Bear is also the symbol animal of Gangwon Province. In the name “Bandabi,” “banda” comes from “bandal” meaning “half-moon”, indicating the white crescent on the chest of the Asiatic Black Bear, and “bi” has the meaning of celebrating the Games.
