The name ‘Soohorang’ is a combination of several meanings in the Korean language.
‘Sooho’ is the Korean word for ‘protection’, meaning that it protects the athletes, spectators
and all participants of the Olympic Games.
‘Rang’ comes from the middle letter of ‘ho-rang-i’, which means ‘tiger’,
and also from the last letter of ‘Jeongseon Arirang’,
a traditional folk music of Gangwon Province, where the host city is located.
