The three themes are China's aspiration for world peace, the Olympic principles as well as good expectations towards the Beijing Winter Games, said Zhao Weidong at an online press conference.
An around 3,000-people performance lineup was also unveiled during the conference.
The spokesman added the three-day torch relay of the Winter Olympics will be organized from Feb. 2 this year. A total of 1,200 torch bearers will participate in the relay process.
The ice-snow culture, historic culture along with iconic Great Wall city impressions of Beijing will be presented during the torch relay.
