The original idea of the logo of Hunan TV is about a white fish and a golden grain, symblizing that Hunan is a land of abundance and a land flowing with milk and honey. The light yellow and golden color symblize the sprits of Hunan people, including optimistic, brave and creativity. In recent years, audiences gave Hunan TV a nickname as Mango TV, because the shape of its logo looks like a golden mango.
