Panaji: Our City, Our Nature, Our Future
The city of Panaji lies on the banks of the Mandovi River Estuary, bound by Ourém creek and Santa Inêz creek. This city is situated in the Western Ghats, a global biodiversity hotspot. As depicted in the illustrated natural asset map, the city is also a treasure of biodiversity. The map is rendered in the style of Goa’s iconic Azulejos tile art, introduced by the Portuguese, which became Panaji’s visual identity. Only two colours feature in the map, white and blue since these were traditionally used in Azulejos tiles. The compass too alludes to Goa’s colonial history, bearing a perched rooster.
