2024 Olympic Games Mascots

Origins of the 2024 Olympic Games Mascots

The Phryges are based on an item of clothing that is a symbol of freedom; has been part of French history for centuries; and dates back to ancient times.

After featuring on certain flags in Latin America before becoming widely popularised by French revolutionaries, the Phrygian cap has now become a familiar symbol in France.

A symbol of revolutions, the French Republic and freedom, the Phrygian cap can be seen on the French national icon Marianne, depicted in busts at town halls across the country as well as on stamps, and is also covered in the national curriculum in schools.

Who are the Phryges?

Phrygian cap

These little Phrygian caps are the mascots for Paris 2024.

Colourful red characters based on the famous Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom.

They are convinced that sport can change everything.

The Phrygians have stood shoulder to shoulder with the French people in all the key moments of history.

The French National Archives show records of Phrygian caps worn during the construction of Paris' Notre-Dame cathedral in 1163; during the revolution of 1789; during work to build the Eiffel Tower; and during the Games in 1924.

The Olympic Phryge Mascot

The Olympic Mascot

Always thoughtful and an astute strategist, she embarks on adventures only after carefully weighing up all of the pros and cons.

Just like the Olympic athletes, she knows the importance of measuring all the various parameters to achieve her goals.

With her sharp mind, she is modest and prefers to hide her emotions.

The Olympic Phryge will lead the movement of all those who take part in sport.

The Paralympic Phryge Mascot

The Paralympic Mascot

With her running prosthetic, she can run at lightning speed.

Her thing is to blaze a trail, some might say she is fearless, which might be true, but one thing is certain, she hates to be bored and loves trying out new things.

No matter which sport, as a team or on her own, she is always game.

With her, you will get moving, playing, dancing, sweating!

With her mindset as the perfect supporter, she loves promoting the values of sport, celebrating athletes in all arenas and all of the Games venues, and partying to celebrate victories or get over defeats.
