The Energy of Asia lies in the persity of it's culture, heritage, and legacy. When all these elements come together, they will be a major force to reckon in the world.  

The same principle applies to Indonesia, home to hundreds of ethnic groups speaking many different languages. Our Founding Fathers had envisioned a strong and united nation under the Bhinneka Tunggal Ika philosophy. 

That is why we decide to propose three different animals as the official game's mascot. Also in correlation to Asian Games, each of these animals represents an aspect of the sport competition such as strategy, speed and power.
