The Shanghai expo emblem depicts the three people--you, me and he or she hugging arms and represents the mankind on the earth as a big happy family. This design, shaped like Chinese character "世", embodies the themes of the expo: pursuing a better life for the mankind.
A plump blue cartoon image with his thumb up, grinned face and a curl of hair has formed the Shanghai mascot—Haibao. Haibao means the treasure of the four seas. This blue little mascot combines elements of earth, dream, sea, future, technology and uses the human as the main originality to convey that human are the builder and the same taster of happy life. As long as the people around the world support each other and maintain a harmonious relationship with the nature and society, the goal--better city, better life will not be distant.
