The 3rd Asian Indoor Games (Vietnamese: Đại hội Thể thao Trong nhà châu Á 2009) were held in Vietnam from 30 October till 8 November 2009.

Mascot

The mascot of the 2009 event is the Ho chicken (Gà Hồ), a rare and distinctly Vietnamese breed of chicken. In Vietnamese culture, the chicken (particularly the rooster) have the five qualities of a man of honour: literacy, martial arts, physical strength, humanity and loyalty. The symbolism in the context of the AIGs is that the rooster mascot rising to welcome the sun is linked to the readiness of the sports industry of Vietnam to host this major event.
