Commonwealth Games Mascott 2022 – Competition Winner
Perry is inspired by the design of ten-year-old Emma Lou from St James (Daisy Hill) C of E Primary School, the winner of a national design competition that took place over the summer of 2020. The competition tasked children aged 5-15 with creating a mascot that reflects the identity, heritage and culture of Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Emma was visited in person by the mascot in her home, which took her by surprise! She never thought she’d win and that it would ever happen to her.
When Emma had calmed down she added, “I feel as if I’m in a dream! I think the mascot is great, he looks so cute. I am really excited to come to the Commonwealth Games and it will be amazing to see Perry in the Opening Ceremony.”
Perry is Birmingham 2022’s official mascot! The best of Brum, second to none, this latest icon is an extra special, multi-coloured bull, and he can’t wait for the Commonwealth Games to begin.
Perry is a proper Brummie: strong, kind and a little bit cheeky, and he can’t wait to get the party started in 2022 when he’ll be seen by more than a billion people all over the world!
Some of Perry’s Special Features include; his name, his rainbow-coloured hexagons, his glistening gold medal and the stripes on his kit.
