Minister for Information and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, on Monday, invited the suggestion of netizens as he seeks to recreate the national emblem.
In a tweet earlier today, he called out the graphic designers of Pakistan to pitch in their ideas about the new logo design of Govt of Pakistan. He also gave his suggestion that symbols of jute and tea must be removed from the state emblem of Pakistan.
“In Government of Pakistan logo my suggestion is Jute and Tea should be replaced with Science & Technology and education icons, graphic designers there send me your ideas….” said Fawad Chaudhry in a tweet.

Fawad Chaudhry did not stare further about what he will be doing with the suggestion of graphic designers.
The national emblem was adopted in 1954 and features a star and crescent above. The shield in the center shows the jute and tea, the two major crops produce in Pakistan before the separation of East Pakistan. It also features cotton and wheat- the two major produces of Pakistan currently. The shield is surrounded by a wreath. Below the wreath is a scroll.
The state emblem represents Pakistan’s ideological foundation, the basis of its economy and its cultural heritage, and its guiding principles.
The floral wreath surrounding the shield represents Jasmine, the national flower of Pakistan. Also depicts the floral designs used in Mughal art and enforces the cultural heritage of Pakistan.

The scroll supporting the shield is inscribed with the national motto in Urdu-Iman, Ittihad, Nazm which can be translated to Faith, Unity, and Discipline.
Meanwhile, the Twitter post of Fawad Chaudhry is flooded with pictures of new logo designs by social media users. Social media users have suggested including a standard atom model in the background and even a rocket, representing the aim of Pakistan to excel in the field of science and technology.
