Nanyang releases slogan, logo, mascot for int'l rose convention

(en.nanyang.gov.cn) Updated: 2019-01-04

The city of Nanyang recently released the official mascot, logo and slogan for the 2019 World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS) Regional Convention, which is slated to take place in southwest Henan city in April.

The convention, which will be held from April 28 to May 2, marks the first time in history that the WFRS has come to Central China.

The slogan for the international event is "Hometown of Roses, Spread Fragrance across the World", which hints at Nanyang's 2,000-year history of rose cultivation and highlights its connection with the rest of the world.

The logo for the event features a rose flower with the Chinese character 宛 (nickname for Nanyang) below it. The Chinese character looks a bit like clouds, drawing from Nanyang’s status as the springboard for the South-to-North Water Diversion project and as the home of Chinese roses. It also represents the long-standing friendship between Nanyang and the rest of the world.

The mascot, Wanwan, is a person adorned with a rose, green leaves and waves, representing the harmonious relationship between humans and nature. The mascot is opening its arms to reflect the hospitality of Nanyang people and welcome guests from all around the world.
