The mascots of the games
On July 28, 2016, a new logo based on the stadium of the Jakarta Asian Games held in 1962 was presented as the official emblem of The Games in Asia! If you haven't had the chance to see it, the logo features eight roads leading to the stadium, in addition to a sun that shines in the centre, which symbolises the energy of Asia. The new pets, on the other hand, reflect the diversity of Indonesia through three animals from three different regions: Bhin Bhin, a local bird named cenderawashi, symbolizes the strategy. Atung, a deer from Bawean, symbolizes speed and spirit that never gives up. And finally, Kaka, a Java rhinoceros, symbolizes power.
