8th ASEAN Para Games Theme
Adopting the theme of Celebrate the Extraordinary, the Games aims to promote friendship and solidarity amongst persons with disabilities in the ASEAN region through sport, to promote and develop sport for the differently abled, and rehabilitate and integrate persons with disabilities into mainstream society through sport.
8th ASEAN Para Games Logo
The logo draws its inspiration from the 28th SEA Games and the dynamism of sport is reflected through the radiance of the colour palette.
The human figures, arms raised in jubilation and seamlessly joined, embodies the essence of the international paralympic movement of Spirit in motion. They weave together to form the shape of a heart, signifying the gumption to overcome challenges, and the indomitable triumph of the human spirit.
The three figures also represent inclusiveness, uplifting and transforming sports with disabilities, and national pride.
It symbolises that even as we compete against each other, we complement each other, as individuals, as a movement, and as a region.
So, whoever we are or wherever we are heading, we know that success ultimately comes to those who reach for the extraordinary.
