The energy-saving certification mark of Chinese products consists of a circular pattern composed of the first letter "e" of "energy", which contains a deformed Chinese character "节", implying energy-saving. The outer circle of the gap forms the first letter "C" of "CHINA". The upper part of the "节" is simplified into the shape of an ancient Great Wall, which together with the pattern of a peak fire platform in the lower part, symbolizes China. The last half of "节" is the first letter "N" of the Chinese Pinyin of "能". Chinese and English are included in the whole design to facilitate international integration.
