The Bank of China is known as "Yang Ma" ("Big Mama" in colloquial English).

What are the characters for "Yang Ma"?


Thank you

央妈 in simplified Chinese
央媽 in traditional Chinese
央 is the second character of the noun "中央" Zhongyang, meaning the center.(People's Bank of China is the central bank of China.)
媽 just means mother.
