The Capital Development Authority (CDA) of Islamabad introduced an official mascot ‘MarGo’ to enhance the city’s identity and promote cultural significance, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
This mascot, which resembles a cheetah, is set to become the new identity of Islamabad.

The name ‘MarGo’ is derived from ‘Mar’, representing the Margalla Hills, and ‘Go’, signifying prosperity or flourishing.
This combination reflects the cosmopolitan nature of the capital and its continuous growth.
The CDA board has approved this initiative, and the Asian Cheetah, a species at risk of extinction, has been chosen as the mascot. This decision not only promotes the city but also highlights the importance of wildlife conservation.
