Mascot ◦ Mascot Definition. ◦ The Olympic mascot(s) is a character, usually an animal native to the area or occasionally human figures, who represents the cultural heritage of the place where the Olympic and Paralympic Games are taking place. ◦ The first Olympic mascot appeared at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. Since then, mascots have become a major element of the Olympic brand. Mascots act as a vehicle for communicating the Olympic spirit to the general public, especially children and youth. They have come in many shapes and sizes, though they all convey the theme of the Olympic Games, and showcase the distinctive geographical features, history and culture of the host cities.Up until 1992, most Olympic mascots were created based on an animal unique to the hostcountry. Since then, human or invented figures have been used, and ten more than onemascot - the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympic Games had four mascots; the 2000 SydneyOlympic Games had three and the 2004 Athens Olympic Games had two, and Beijing had five!London has gone back to one, but one for each of the Olympic Games and Paralympics.
