MANDEVILLE MASCOT LONDON

Wenlock is the official mascot for the 2012 Summer Olympics, and Mandeville is the official mascot for the 2012 Summer Paralympics, both held in London, England, United Kingdom. They were created by Iris, a London-based creative agency.  The mascots were unveiled on 19 May 2010, marking the second time (after Vancouver’s Miga, Quatchi, Sumi and Mukmuk) that both Olympic and Paralympic mascots were unveiled at the same time.

Mandeville is named after Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. In 1948, Stoke Mandeville Hospital organised the first Stoke Mandeville Games, considered to be the precursor to the Paralympics. The three spikes on Mandeville’s helmet represent the Paralympic Agitos. He also represents friendship.
