Vote for “Punkie” or “Muse” to become Chinatown’s new mascot!

Vancouver Chinatown Mascot Voting

Date posted

Coming this summer, Vancouver Chinatown will have its very own mascot! But first, we need your help.

Earlier this year, the Vancouver Chinatown BIA Society (VCBIA) proposed an idea to develop a mascot that would provide a recognizable identity for Vancouver's Chinatown. This mascot will complement the existing Chinatown culture with Vancouver's uniqueness and diverse multiculturalism.

This one mascot needs to achieve a great deal by itself: appeal to children and tourists from all over the world, represent the local community, and personify the values and essence of Vancouver Chinatown.

Online Voting
Online voting to select one final design for the Chinatown mascot will take place June 1 - June 30. A page with more information about each of these mascots is already available at
