The NPC logo showcases a human symbol in a posture that denotes movement, spirit and motion. The rising movement denotes the soaring spirit of sports, competition and victory.

The accompanying flag of Pakistan makes it obvious that this is a national movement for Pakistan and evokes an image of the athlete raising the flag of his country.

The text encircles the image, thus denoting the mandate of the National Paralympics Committee Pakistan.

The IPC logo at the bottom signifies the association of NPC, Pakistan with International Paralympic Committee.
