Knowing China And It’s Culture

Given all the uncertainty surrounding the Olympic games we felt it only right to reach out and let you know some info about China and what it has to offer as well as info on the games.

I received the following and wanted to share it with you, so enjoy the read and thanks to for the info

China is nestled within Eastern Asia, bordering the East China Sea, Korea Bay, Yellow Sea, and South China Sea. The country resides between North Korea and Vietnam.

Ranked first in the world for total population, China is currently home to almost 1.4 billion people. The majority of this vast population is found in the eastern half of the country, due to the western half’s vast mountainous and desert areas. Beijing, the capital of the People’s Republic of China, is one of the world’s most populous cities, holding an estimated 21,700,000 people.

Despite its vast size, all of China falls within one time zone, which is UTC+8 (13 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time). The official language of China is Standard Chinese or Mandarin and 91.6% of China’s population is Han Chinese.

The country proclaimed its independence and was established as the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949.

Today, China is a communist state with 23 provinces, 5 autonomous regions, and 4 municipalities. Xi Jinping has been China’s President since March 14, 2013.

The medals for Beijing 2022 are named “Tong Xin”, meaning “together as one”. They are each composed of five rings and a centre, with the design based on ancient

Chinese jade concentric circle pendants. On the front are the Olympic rings surrounded by engravings of ice, snow, and cloud patterns based on traditional Chinese designs.

On the back is the Beijing 2022 emblem surrounded by 24 dots for the 24th edition of the Olympic Winter Games. Their positioning resembles a celestial map in honour of the athletes who will aim to shine like stars as they compete for these medals.

Bing Dwen Dwen is the Beijing 2022 mascot. The mascot, whose body is shelled in ice, represents the strength and willpower of all athletes.

“Bing”, meaning ice, symbolizes the strength and purity of athletes. “Dwen Dwen” represents children as the mascot serves to promote the Olympic spirit throughout the Games. The cheerful panda embodies unique characteristics of China and the Chinese people.

A heart in its left palm represents the country’s hospitality and the colourful halo around its face symbolizes ice and snow sports tracks.

The Winter Games mascot also resembles an astronaut that embraces new technologies with its future being fueled with infinite possibilities, much like the potential of the athletes participating.
