Mumbai to get its very own logo
In keeping with cities like New York and Melbourne, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has decided to have a logo for Mumbai.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to have a logo for branding its property and also the services provided by it.
The official proposal of the logo will be tabled before the civic Standing Committee for approval. It then will be placed before the general body for a final nod.
Rahul Shewale, chairman of the Standing Committee said, "The official proposal will be submitted before the committee for its approval."
The new logo costs BMC Rs 35 lakh as making charges and it will be used only after the general body approves it.
The logo will be in line with those of international cities like New York and Melbourne. The theme for the logo will be 'Majhi Mumbai' (My Mumbai) with black, orange and blue colours.
"Orange signifies passion, unity, friendship, while blue symbolises depth of the sea and sky and shows importance of the Mumbai city," said Shewale.
