Olympic Games
 
Issue Date: June 19, 2008
City:
Philadelphia, PA
 
The 2008 Summer Olympic Games, officially referred to as the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, took place between August 8 and August 24, 2008. The events were held at the Beijing National Stadium in Beijing in the People’s Republic of China. Beijing was selected as the site for the 2008 Olympics at a meeting of the International Olympic Committee on July 13, 2001.
 
The official logo of the 2008 Summer Olympics, titled “Dancing Beijing,” was a stylized representation of the character jing, which means capital, a reference to the host city of Beijing.   The slogan for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games was “One World, One Dream,” a call to the people of the world to join together in peace in the Olympic spirit. The mascots of the games, the Fuwa, were good luck dolls. The five Fuwa were a fish, a giant panda, fire, a Tibetan antelope, and a swallow. Each of these is symbolic of the five elements of Chinese philosophy: water, metal, fire, wood, and earth. Using the first syllable of each of the mascots’ names results in a phrase translated as “Beijing welcomes you.”
 
There were 28 sports with 302 events scheduled (165 men’s events and 127 women’s events, plus 10 mixed events). The 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing were commemorated on a 2008 U.S. postage stamp.
