Since the emblem of the 19th Asian Games was unveiled, it has received a warm reception for its rich cultural connotations. And it was a similar story when the emblem of the 16th Asian Games was revealed.
The emblem of the 16th Asian Games drew inspiration from the “Five Rams” sculpture, a famous landmark in Guangzhou. It artistically transformed the contours of the sculpture into graceful, ascending lines, forming an image of the “Five Rams” that resembled both a podium and a torch. The overall composition of the emblem combined abstraction with realism, exuding a sense of agility and elegance without losing its solemnity. It symbolized the relentless light of the Asian Games’ sacred flame that can never be extinguished.
