The XIV Olympic Winter Games, was a winter multi-sport event which was celebrated from 8–19 February 1984. Vučko the tough and courageous wolf was voted from a choice of six candidates by the readers of three popular Yugoslavian newspapers.
This mascot helped to change the traditionally frightening and bloodthirsty image of the wolf, which is present in the region. According to the designer, the little wolf symbolized the human desire “to be friend animals and become closer to nature”. This wolf has both a serious and a cheerful side, but is happy rather than serious. It symbolizes the desire of human beings to make friends with animals, to make a wolf into a Vuchko.
