People reminded him that there was a difference between a logo and an emblem.

Fawad Chaudhry wants to change some parts of the state emblem of Pakistan, the shield containing the national motto, and people on Twitter aren't really on board with the idea.

The federal minister for information and broadcasting, who previously held the office of federal minister for science and technology from April 19, 2019 to April 16, 2021, still clearly holds science and technology close to his heart and took to social media to suggest the change.

"In [the] government of Pakistan logo my suggestion is jute and tea should be replaced with science snd technology, and education icons," he posted on Twitter, asking graphic designers to send him their ideas and expecting a whole lot of suggestions in return.

The response however, was hilarious, as people not only did not pitch him more designs, but trolled him for it, correcting him and saying there was a difference between a logo and an emblem, and he was talking about the latter in this case.

Some were still salty about exams being held in the country

While others were confused about the nation's priorities

Some rightfully called out the exploitation

And others went a little too far

The minister should know, they said

While the internal wars continued

Questions were raised

There, this one said it.

The quartered shield in the emblem represents cotton, wheat, tea and jute, which were Pakistan's major crops during the time of independence, and are shown in a form of a shield; signifying the country's agriculture base as a crucial part of its economy.

The crest and the green colour of the emblem are traditional symbols of Islam, while the shield contains the national motto in Urdu — translated as 'Faith, Unity, Discipline' — which are intended as the guiding principles for Pakistan.
