Described as a curious and vigorous Singaporean boy who has a strong preference for durian, "Durian Star" will be printed on all souvenirs to be sold or given to visitors.

The mascot's image can be found at The mascot was introduced to the public on November 26 as the city-state celebrated the completion of the steel structure for its exhibition hall.

The pavilion's red logo was also unveiled. The inspiration came from the city-state's music-box-like pavilion and musical instruments such as the glockenspiel, piano and marimba.

The three-story "music box" pavilion will have an "Urban Symphony" theme. Its aluminum facade will portray Singapore's famous buildings. Music will be a core element in Singapore's 3,000-square-meter pavilion.

The building is scheduled to be completed in April.
