The robot Lianlian represents the West Lake, another World Heritage site. It derives its name from the lakeful of lush lotus leaves. The Chinese people love lotus leaves because they are associated with purity, nobleness and peace.
Lianlian is graceful and light-gaited, as seen ambling amid the lake’s misty willows, exquisite bridges and lush lotus leaves. It takes green, the colour of life and nature, as its main tone. Its lotus leaf-shaped headpiece is distinctively decorated with the Three Pools Mirroring the Moon, a scenic view of the West Lake, and the icon of Internet.
Pure, kind, lively, cute, elegant and hospitable, Lianlian reflects a refined, graceful, harmonious and open-minded spirit and conveys the aspirations for building a community of shared future for mankind.
