Paris 2024 unveils its mascots for the Olympic & Paralympic Games
The Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 has unveiled the Phryges, the mascots chosen for the Olympic & Paralympic Games Paris 2024.
A little more than 600 days before the opening of the Olympic & Paralympic Games Paris 2024, an immense tribe of small Phrygian caps, known as Phryges (pronounced “fri-jee-uhs”), will be sweeping across France!
Creating an original, appealing and unifying mascot
The task assigned to these Phryges – small Phrygian caps that represent a strong symbol of freedom not only in France but around the world – will be to accompany the French in a new revolution: a revolution through sport! The Olympic Phryge and the Paralympic Phryge will stand in the vanguard of this movement, a pair of mascots sharing the same conviction: everything can be transformed by sport!
And to involve as many people as possible in the tremendous buildup of energy and enthusiasm as the Games draw nearer, the Paris 2024 mascots are already setting an example by training non-stop!
By choosing a Paralympic mascot with a visible disability, Paris 2024 also wants to give maximum visibility to people with disabilities and to promote loudly and clearly the values of inclusion as expressed by the Paralympic Games in particular, and by sport in general.
Setting out to meet the public
The Olympic and Paralympic mascots will also be animated! In their role as ambassadors of the Olympic Games Paris 2024, they will reach out to the French public until 2024 when all the major events of Paris 2024 will be held in the country’s different regions and be present, more generally, at the most significant sporting and cultural events organized in France.
With the Phryges, let's start a revolution through sport!
