I think the mascots for the 2008 Olympic games rock.

The naming, concept and design is clever. The macscots named "BeiBei", "JingJing", "HuanHuan", "YingYing" and "NiNi", which together mean "Beijing welcomes you". They are colored in the five hues of the olympic rings. They represent a panda (the earth), a swallow (air), a fish (the sea), a Tibetan antelope (the forest) and the olympic flame (the fire). I really like the oriental trace in the details of the design. NICE!
