BEIJING, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Jiayuan.com International Ltd. ("Jiayuan") (NASDAQ: DATE), operator of the largest online dating platform in China, today announced the launch of a new mascot and logo to celebrate 10 successful years of helping marriage-minded singles find love. The new imagery will be used for the Jiayuan brand from May 20, 2013.
The new mascot, named "Jiajia," is a blue magpie, which in Chinese culture is a symbol of luck, happiness, and a "bridge to love." Jiajia is holding Cupid's bow and arrow, which reflects Jiayuan's mission to help singles find serious relationships in a convenient and safe environment. Along with the new mascot, Jiayuan also introduced a simpler and more modern corporate logo. The blue and pink color scheme represents sensibility and longevity, on the one hand, and sensitivity and love on the other.

The updated Jiayuan brand imagery helps open a new chapter in the next-stage of our growth.
