The government of Nepal has received massive backlash on social media after the release of its new federal parliament logo [crafted version]. The Federal Parliament has crafted a new logo with an updated political and administrative map of Nepal. The logo was handed over to Federal Parliament officials on Sunday.
Secretary-General of the Federal Parliament Dr. Bharatraj Gautam handed over the logo to Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota, National Assembly Speaker Ganesh Prasad Timilsina and National Assembly Vice President Shashikala Dahal in the Speaker’s office at Singha Durbar. Speaker Sapkota, Chairman Timilsina, and Vice-Chairman Dahal have put up new logos since Sunday. A meeting of the House of Representatives and National Assembly Business Advisory Committee held on May 26 decided to modify the logo used by the members of the federal parliament according to the updated map of Nepal.
After the release of the logo, many social media users have commented that the logo is not well-made. The logo itself is not that bad but when it is crafted using the metal substance, the detail of the logo is not recovered.
The Federal Parliament’s new logo is designed by 87 years old Tekbir Mukhiya. He designed two variances of logos each containing different signs and symbols. When logo is sent for the final craft, its shape has significantly changed to awkward looks. The 3.5 cm logo is made up of gold, silver, bronze, and brass, and each cost 5527.86 to craft.
