Shanghai Expo Mascot: Hao Bao
The Shanghai Expo 2010 mascot is known as Hao Bao (lit."treasure of the world") and is created from the Chinese character "ren" (人) meaning "people" or "human being".
The flexible blue cartoon character is now popping up all over China to promote the Expo -- Hao Bao can be seen just about everywhere from Hong Kong to Beijing.
