The EYOF Mascot
16 February 2013
- The official mascot of EYOWF 2013 is Martin, the Carpathian Brown Bear. Martin is dressed in red, yellow and blue clothes, representing the colors of the Romanian national flag. Allthough the bear is present in almost all the places in the world, the Carpathian Brown Bear is an animal considered to be Romanian, because of its large presence in the Carpathian mountains from our country. The bear has been largely present in the Romanian culture, inspiring a lot of songs and fairytales.
Martin is presented in several instances, corresponding to the eight sporting events of EYOWF 2013: Alpine Skiing, Biathlon, Cross Country, Ice Hockey, Ski jumping, Short Track, Figure Skating and Snowboarding
