The Concept

Snow leopard is the king that rules the snow-draped woods and the high alpine areas. It is fiercely powerful, adaptive, unintimidated, audacious extremely graceful, and possess the wholesomeness of beauty. The logo of Sevendays is designed impeccably by taking into consideration the aura of winters in Gilgit Baltistan. The theme of Sevendays signifies the fact that cubs are blind at birth and they take Seven Days to open their eyes. The yellow tint of the logo manifests the power, strength, and gracefulness of the leopard, also known as the black panther, which is the king animal of winter. The bluish hue of the logo represents the Crisp of ice or the Frozen Waters, moreover, the implicit meaning of this logo reflects the resilience of people in the north who celebrate the harshness of the colder phase of the year with warmth and joy. To our extreme disappointment, human actions are posing incredible threats to the existence of this treasured animal known as snow leopard. Nevertheless, through the platform of Sevendays winter feast and utilizing all other appropriate and available forums, the WWF, Parks and Wildlife, and the IUCN will gear up to run campaigns and drives for the conservation of this extremely precious animal.
