The symbol mark is a motif of "U", expressing passion and energy in the flickering flames of a burning torch. In the flames one sees both the profile of a youth and an "F", the first letter of Fukuoka.


The mascot character for the Fukuoka Games, "Kapapoo", is a motif of a unicorn, a mythical European creature.
