Phryges- the official Paris Olympics 2024 mascot

In contrast to the mascots of previous Games editions, the mascots of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games are unique and feature Phrygian caps instead of animals.

The people will be accompanied to the Paris 2024 Games by these two red mascots, known as the Phryges, who represent freedom and revolution. With distinct yet complimentary personalities, the two Phryges; one Olympic and the other Paralympic; share a shared goal of promoting and emulating sport in an inclusive spirit and French.

A Phrygian cap serves as the model for the Olympic Phryge. The mascots will play a significant role by spearheading a revolution through sport, in line with Paris 2024’s objective to show how sport can transform lives.
