The Emblem of the 2nd Asian Youth Games depicts four representative elements of the City of Nanjing: mountains, rivers, city walls and tree leaves as well as the “Red Sun” logo of the Olympic Council of Asia.
The composition of the Emblem, painted in Chinese calligraphy, is a vivid representation of an athlete and in the form of the Chinese character “Ning” (abbreviation for the name of Nanjing) in the sunlight. The entire Emblem is bright in colours and is full of motion and energy.

The Official Games Mascot, named “AYG Yuan Yuan” in Chinese is derived from the “dawn monkey of China”. The species was first discovered in a remote area of Jiangsu and was one of the first known primates. The design of the mascot was inspired by the “Red Sun” logo of the Olympic Council of Asia.
Rounded lines are applied to form the monkey’s face and its tail is delineated with the patterns of rain flower stones (a special local product also known as Riverstone or Yuhua stone).
The Mascot is passionate and uniquely combines the heritage of the city, the vitues of the Games and the vibrancy of youth. It also reflects the Nanjing citizens’ hopes for the Games and the warm welcome they extend to all friends and guests from Asian countries and regions.
