Google Special: Beijing Olympics

The five “things” in the Google logo are the five mascots for the Beijing Olympics, namely Bei Bei, Jing Jing, Huan Huan, Ying Ying and Ni Ni. Together, they mean “Beijing welcomes you” in Chinese. 205 countries will participate in the 2008 Olympics, and this is undoubtedly going to be a huge event.
