The logo draws inspiration from the Toono (pronounced like “Tawn”), the circular opening on the roof of a traditional Mongolian yurt, symbolizing unity and connection with the outside world. The stylized Toono, in the shape of a sunburst with rays radiating outwards, represents the games' theme of "Come Together." Its colors are inspired by the Mongolian landscape, with shades of blue and green for the sky and grasslands, and yellow and red for the warmth of the sun. The Toono logo embodies the spirit of the games, celebrating cultural diversity and competition in friendship and sportsmanship.
