The 1st Asian Indoor Games were held in Bangkok, Thailand from November 12, 2005 to November 19, 2005.

Emblem[edit]

For the “Logo” of the 1st Asian Indoor Games itself, it comprises 9 sparkling stars, reflecting the opinions of the Asian people at large:

  1. Spirit and soul of mankind
  2. Sporting spirit
  3. Creation of friendship
  4. Building good physical appearances
  5. Inspiration
  6. Creative thinking
  7. Solidarity
  8. Peacefulness
  9. Human freedom

For the “E” shape of the sun, it reflects a symbol of the Olympic Council of Asia.

For the redline, the blue line and the golden line, they are forming like an “A” shape, together with a Thai roof, revealing the meanings of the Asian continent and the Asian Games. A golden line is a Thai smile, expressing a warm welcome to visitors.

Thailand receives reliability, creditability and confidence by the OCA member countries, once again, to host the 1st Asian Indoor Games in 2005. For the Games mascot, the Organizing Committee agrees to use “Elephant” as it foresees that it is a national treasure of Thailand. Besides being a mighty animal, it is an intelligent animal capable of using it in various occasions even during our natural disaster.

Mascot[edit]

Each sport discipline is animated with an elephant, thus giving the appearance of its cartoon movements in all events to be competed in the 1st Asian Indoor Games 2005. Children and other people alike will be fond of them, pleasant to look at them and keeping them for a souvenir after the end of the Games.

The blue and athletic elephant was named Hey and the yellow and plump one was Há. They were to convey the meaning of amusement, merriment and relaxation, thus in a way reflecting the natures of the Asian Indoor Games a great deal.

Participating nations[edit]

There are 37 Asian countries confirmed to participate in the game.
