Bandabi
“Bandabi”, an Asiatic black bear, has been named as the mascot for the South Korea’s 2018 Pyeongchang Paralympic Winter Games. Bandabi was picked as the Paralympic mascot because bears to Koreans represent strong will and courage, and also because the Asian black bear is the symbolic animal of the Gangwon Province, the region that governs Pyeongchang. 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.
