Chen Ning, director general of Beijing 2022's Culture and Ceremonies Department, said that the slogan was a commitment towards overcoming global challenges as a community with a shared future for mankind.

The motto was chosen after a lengthy process that included a total of 79 different proposals.

"This motto embodies the Olympic spirit, the Chinese way of revealing the Olympic spirit. That's because 'together' embodies a type of unity, cohesion and way of overcoming difficulties," said Chen.

Earlier, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said that the Games would -- like Tokyo 2020 -- require strict COVID-19 restrictions, with Chen adding that organisers were yet to decide if spectators would be allowed.

The Games will be held from Feb. 4-20, with Beijing set to become the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics.
