The mascots for the Rio 2016 Olympics were unveiled on Monday.

According to organizers the yellow mascot represents the animals of Brazil, while its blue Paralympics counterpart “is a fusion of plants found in Brazilian forests”.

Both mascots, which were created by a São Paulo-based design agency, currently have no names.

The public can vote on one of three sets of names – Oba and Eba, Tiba Tuque and Esquindim, and Vinicius and Tom.

The results of the poll will be announced on 14 December.
