130th Session of China Import and Export Fair Unveils Mascots

The 130th session of China Import and Export Fair, also known as the Canton Fair, officially unveiled its mascots. Let’s take a look at them!

The mascots are a pair of lively, cute, diligent and brave bees named “Hao Bao” and “Hao Ni” or “Bee” and “Honey” in English, respectively.

Inspiration of the design

Bees have a positive image in many cultures around the world. They are widely distributed on the planet and enjoy a high reputation. The honey they make is a daily necessity for humans, which is natural, uncontaminated, and sweet. It is loved by people from all countries. Bees are social animals that abide by the principle of division of work and collaboration. They are a symbol of loyalty, diligence, unity and devotion, which perfectly echoes with the functions, position, roles and contribution of the Canton Fair. They also mirror the characters of those joining the Canton Fair who are true to their original aspiration, open, resilient and innovative, demonstrating China’s major country responsibility to actively build an open world economy and a community with a shared future for mankind, and to use its new achievements in development to provide the world with new opportunities.

Implication of the mascots’ names

Hao Bao is a boy’s name and a homonym of Bee. It symbolizes preciousness and perseverance, signifying that the Canton Fair is a glorious treasure in the history of China’s foreign trade. Hao Bao is smart, wise, loyal and responsible. It demonstrates that the Canton Fair, under the leadership and guidance of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has grown together with the country, advanced with the time and made constant innovations. It also indicates the important contributions made by the Canton Fair to China’s foreign trade development, opening up and the Chinese socialist economy.

Hao Ni is a girl’s name and a homonym of Honey, meaning friendliness and beauty. It symbolizes that the Canton Fair is a golden business card of China. Hao Ni is lively, cordial, and cute, signifying that the Canton Fair is “A Bond of Friendship, A Bridge for Trade” connecting China and the world. It also stands for the high reputation and influence enjoyed by the event in the international trade sphere, as well the event’s important role in the facilitation of Chinese-foreign friendly exchanges.

Both of the names of the two mascots start with “Hao” which means “good” in Chinese. It carries a good wish for the sellers, buyers, China and the world, and demonstrates China’s commitment to peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit. The country will keep opening wider, benefit the world with Chinese products, Chinese creation, Chinese brands and Chinese technologies, create a better life for the people around the world, and ceaselessly inject confidence and vitality into the stable development of the global economy.

Connotation of the design

Inspired by a pair of lovely bees, the design carries a rich connotation.

Hao Bao and Hao Ni signify bee and honey, meaning the creation of a better life for the world. Their heads are dialogue boxes that represent communication and trade cooperation, symbolizing the high-quality development of trade driven by digitalization. The mascots’ tentacles are designed upon antenna, signifying China’s aspiration to achieve win-win results with the world through interconnection. Hao Bao’s hexagon-shaped wings contain stable beehives, which is futuristic and indicates the Canton Fair’s determination to make new development miracles through technological advancement and innovation. The wings of Hao Ni are in round shape, making the notation of infinity (∞) that symbolizes the “dual circulation” and the “dual format.” They demonstrate that the Canton Fair will implement new development philosophies in the new era, serve the building of a new development paradigm, stand at the forefront of innovation, and embrace integrated development in the future. The kapok flower on the head of Hao Ni is Guangzhou’s city flower, also hailed as the “hero flower”. It stands for the host city of the Canton Fair, as well as the “heroes” that have worked hard and silently behind the scene to make the event successful. The red Baoxiang pattern on the chests of the two mascots is the logo of the Canton Fair, representing the CPC’s tradition of revolution and the value of the brand. It demonstrates that the Canton Fair will bear in mind the expectations of the CPC, shoulder its responsibilities, and strive for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The two mascots, running and jumping, as well as their outreaching arms and happy smiles, stand for the Canton Fair’s hospitality, China’s firm determination to open wider, and the country’s sincere hope to embrace the world and build a community with a shared future for mankind.
