Hong Kong 2009
Emblem Hong Kong 2009

The five-colour fireworks graphics of the 2009 East Asian Games Emblem make reference to the five Olympic rings, and the sparkling fireworks symbolize the energy of athletes striving to fulfil their potential and to achieve sporting excellence.

The design embraces the spirit of the 2009 East Asian Games, which advocates solidarity, harmony, friendship, the realization of potential and the building of a better and peaceful world.

The "Fireworks" also bring home the unique characteristics of Hong Kong as Asia's world city - its vibrancy, freedom, progressiveness and prosperity.
