The YEAN Logo
The Chinese character ‘燕’ was chosen for it had a similar pronunciation as ‘yean’. More significantly, in the past, Beijing was named ‘燕京’, and this character represents our presence in the Chinese capital. Red was also selected due to its close relations with Chinese culture. 2 swallows(燕子) flank the sides, with the Great Wall of China forming the base of the logo.
