Tokyo (dpa) - Japanese school children have selected a futuristic-looking design for a pair of mascots for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, organizers said Wednesday.

Mascot A created by designer Ryo Taniguchi won the ballot with 109,041 votes. The Olympic mascot is dark blue and white while the Paralympic one in pink and white.

The Olympic mascot "has an old-fashioned charm that reflects tradition and also has a high-tech, cutting edge vibe," according to Tokyo organizers.

"It has strong sense of justice, and in very athletic," they added.

Meanwhile, the Paralympic mascot "has a dignified inner strength and a kind heart that loves nature," the organizers said.

Primary school classrooms across Japan were given one vote each and 200,000 classrooms at some 16,000 schools cast their ballots for three shortlisted pairs.

A series of controversies have plagued organizers of the 2020 Tokyo Games. In 2015, the original Tokyo Olympics logo was withdrawn after its designer was accused of copying it.
