(HANGZHOU, China, Apr. 20, 2020 AsiaNet=연합뉴스) The official mascot of the 4th Asian Para Games was announced to the world during a ceremony held online.

The charming and optimistic bird Feifei (pronounced Fay Fay in English) is based on a common motif of a "divine bird" in the prehistoric Liangzhu Culture of Hangzhou. The "divine bird" is a harbinger of good news and messenger of culture and happiness in Chinese culture.

The first 'Fei' means flying, referring to inclusiveness, respect and fraternity of society. The second 'Fei' represents the tenacity of athletes with disabilities who pursue their dreams.

A mark on the mascot's face resembles the letter "i", a reference to the "intelligent city" of Hangzhou that is an important hub in China's internet. A ring on its chest comprising 45 dots is symbolic of the joyful gathering of all Asian Paralympic Committee members.

Asian Paralympic Committee President Majid Rashed graced the event with a congratulatory letter. "We are very pleased that the mascot has been launched so far ahead of the Games in order to start building excitement right across Asia," he said.

The Asian Paralympic Games is the largest comprehensive sports event for the disabled in Asia. Held every four years, it takes place after the closing of the Asian Games. The Games will be held from October 9-15 after previous Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, in 2018.

The competition venues used during the Hangzhou Asian Games in September will be upgraded for the Paralympic Games, with improved barrier-free facilities to ensure the needs of competing athletes being met.
