44TEACHING VALUES SECTION 2 CELEBRATING THE VALUES THROUGH SYMBOL AND CEREMONY ACTIVITYSHEET READING A seal is a stamp that acts as the signature of a person or organisation. The official emblem of Beijing 2008 entitled " Chinese Seal- Dancing Beijing" cleverly combines the Chinese seal and the art of calligraphy with sporting features, transforming the elements into a human figure running forward and embracing triumph. The figure resembles the Chinese character " Jing", which stands for the name of the host city and represents a particularly significant Chinese style. The artwork embodies the following messages: Chinese culture the colour of red China Beijing welcomes friends from all over the world to challenge the extreme, achieve perfection and promote the Olympic motto of " Citius, Altius, Fortius"( Faster, Higher, Stronger). FOR DISCUSSION What do each of the mascots stand for? Check out the Beijing 2008 web site: http:// en. beijing2008. com/ 70/ 68/ column211716870. shtml. Invite a person from an Asian tradition or community to help you to interpret the symbols, shapes and colours. For example red, the national colour of the People's Republic of China, stands for celebration. How does each of these symbols celebrate the values of the Olympic Movement? THINGS TO DO Carry out a research project on the writing system of the Chinese language. Learn the Chinese characters – for peace, joy, sport, fair play, excellence, welcome. Make and fly a kite that represents a special bird in your culture.
