Олимпиада в Сочи

Three characters would become the Olympic Winter Games mascots:

the Polar Bear,

the European Hare,

the Amur Leopard.

Sochi 2014 is the only Olympic emblem to include a web address. The mirror of "Sochi" and "2014" 'reflects' that Sochi is a meeting point between sea and mountains. As the main component of the Sochi 2014 emblem, the Olympic rings show that this is a symbol of progress for the Olympic Movement.The change of colours and inner design of the rest of the emblem encourages people to express themselves, with some expected to transform it using traditional images, while others will take an ultra-modern approach.
