  "The spring breeze is like a distinguished guest, and it is prosperous as soon as it arrives." From the preparation to the opening, the Beijing Winter Olympics made every effort to write the answer sheet, with Chinese traditional culture as the background, which perfectly interprets the "Chinese-style romance".

  At the opening ceremony, the countdown to the twenty-four solar terms was very unique.

Beginning of Spring is the first of the twenty-four solar terms in Chinese tradition.

The Beijing Winter Olympics is also the twenty-fourth in the history of the Winter Olympics.

  The child blows away the dandelion, the white seeds float into the air, and fireworks of "dandelion" appear in the sky.

The Chinese and English "Lichun" and "SPRING" are played in the air, and the simultaneous appearance of Chinese and English fireworks is also the first time.

On the evening of February 4, the opening ceremony of the 24th Beijing Winter Olympic Games, which attracted worldwide attention, was grandly held at the National Stadium.

  A drop of ice blue ink fell and turned into the water of the Yellow River.

Such a majestic artistic conception comes from the poem "The water of the Yellow River comes from the sky", which is a romantic imagination and praise for China's mother river.

  The moment the five rings broke the ice, the blood boiled.

The ice ball hit the "Ice Cube", and a crystal clear five rings of ice and snow were carved out of the ice cube.

"Breaking the ice" means breaking down barriers, approaching each other, and becoming one.

  The on-site guide wears a delicate tiger hat, and the guide card in his hand is a "snowflake". The "petal" of the snowflake is integrated with the design element of "Chinese knot", which means unity and auspiciousness.

  "The world is one, the world is one family." Romantic, beautiful and warm, this is the keynote of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics, and it also leaves a different kind of Chinese memory for the world.

  Not only the opening ceremony, but for every participant, this is destined to be an unforgettable Winter Olympics and a cultural "carnival".

  "The world is looking forward to China, and China is ready." Looking back at 2008, the Olympic Games came to China for the first time.

14 years later, the 24th Winter Olympics was successfully opened, and Beijing became the world's first "Double Olympic City".

  The heavy traditional Chinese culture has added an unusual connotation to the Beijing Winter Olympics.

  The construction of the venue, the design of the medals, and even the bouquets of the awards all contain a timeless cultural charm.

The design inspiration of the Shougang Ski Jumping Platform comes from the flying shapes in the Dunhuang murals.

  从人文内核来看,春节与奥运均崇尚和平、重视团聚,体现对美好生活的向往。

  此前,国际奥委会第138次全会经投票表决后,同意在“更快、更高、更强”的奥林匹克格言后加入“更团结”,这是奥林匹克格言100多年来首次修改。

  春节,是中华民族的重要节日,也是团聚的代名词。祭祀祖先、守岁拜年等一系列颇具仪式感的活动,体现了中国的人性伦理之美、生活艺术之美,表达祈盼祥和平安的心愿。

  在时间上,立春往往临近岁首。自然时序与人文风俗交融,人们在欢度新年的同时迎接春天,满怀朝气,这意味着一个全新的开始。

  冬奥会邂逅中国年,“团结”和“团圆”在这个冬天有了更丰富的内涵。北京冬奥会,正向世界展现中国传统文化的魅力、展现文明交流互鉴的魅力。

  如今,冬奥会的各项赛事有序开展。中国迎接八方来客,共赴冰雪之约,一起向未来。(完)
