Sports Affairs Council (zh-t|t=體育委員會) is a council under the Executive Yuan, the executive branch of the government of the Republic of China (Taiwan). It was established in mainland China and relocated to Taiwan after the defeat of Kuomintang in the Chinese Civil War.

History

The Sports Affairs Council was established in 1932. At the time, however, it could not function because the state was at war.cite web |url=http://www.ncpfs.gov.tw/aboutus/aboutus1-2.aspx |title=行政院體育委員會簡史 |accessdate=2008-04-05 |work=Sports Affairs Council official website] In 1973, the Department of Physical Education (zh-t|t=體育司) was established under the Ministry of Education. The department was upgraded to a council directly under the Executive Yuan in 1997.cite web |url=http://www.ncpfs.gov.tw/aboutus/aboutus1-2.aspx |title=行政院體育委員會簡史 |accessdate=2008-04-05 |work=Sports Affairs Council official website]

Seal

The seal of the Sports Affairs Council is consisted of three different colors: blue, green, and red. The color blue represents freedom and energy, green represents development, nature, health, and harmony, and red represents passion.cite web |url=http://www.ncpfs.gov.tw/aboutus/aboutus.aspx |title=行政院體育委員會會徽 |accessdate=2008-04-05 |work=Sports Affairs Council official website]

The shape of the seal is combined with three different elements: ume, sun, and human. The ume is used as it is the national flower of the ROC. The sun represents energy and the human represents humanity.cite web |url=http://www.ncpfs.gov.tw/aboutus/aboutus.aspx |title=行政院體育委員會會徽 |accessdate=2008-04-05 |work=Sports Affairs Council official website]
