The new Paralympic Symbol consists of three elements in red, blue and green - the three colours that are most widely represented in national flags around the world. It is a symbol that is in motion, with three Agitos (from the Latin word "agito", meaning "I move") encircling a centre point; emphasizing the role that the IPC has of bringing athletes from all corners of the world together and enabling them to compete. It also emphasizes the fact that Paralympic athletes are constantly inspiring and exciting the world with their performances - always moving forward and never giving up - as embodied in the new Paralympic vision "To Enable Paralympic Athletes to Achieve Sporting Excellence and to Inspire and Excite the World".
APC in consultation and with the approval of IPC designed its own emblem. The emblem was incorporated with IPC symbol.
