The official emblem and slogan for the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Para Games have been unveiled by the Organising Committee on 23 March.
The emblem includes an athlete on a wheelchair striving forward, exuding dynamism, energy and passion. It also consists of a running track formed by 10 semi-arc lines with a gradient ramp from purple to red and then yellow, reflecting the surging tides of the Qiantang River that runs through Hangzhou.
Chen Weiqiang, Asian Para Games Deputy Secretary General and Hanzgzhou Vice-Mayor, said: “The emblem conforms to the concept of 'sunshine, harmony, self-improvement and sharing.”
At the same time, "Hearts meet, Dreams shine" was announced as the slogan of the 2022 Asian Para Games.
Asian Paralympic Committee President Majid Rashed said: “With over two years to go to the Games, we’re delighted that the emblem and slogan are being launched now and congratulate the Organising Committee on their efforts.
“The chosen design for the emblem together with the slogan captures the dynamic, positive spirit of the Asian Para Games perfectly and we are very pleased to unveil these today.
Hangzhou 2022 will take place from 9-15 October. An estimated 3,000 athletes will compete across 22 sports.
