China - Yingying - Mascot of the Olympics in Beijing (CN-25673)

Yingying is one of the 5 mascots of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. I don't know, if the sender decided to choose a postcard exactly with this one intentionally, but that's my favorite one... Why? Yes, because it's orange! ;)

Cultural inspiration: Tibetan antelope, Tibetan and Xinjiang ethnic costumes.
Olympic Ring: Yellow/Orange
Represented Element: Earth
Actual Fengshui Element: Earth
Personality: lively, independent
Represented sport: track and field
Notes: The Tibetan antelope is an endangered species native to the Tibetan Plateau, known for its swiftness. Yingying's headgear incorporates elements of Tibetan and Xinjiang ethnic costumes.
