Meet the Expo 2020 Mascots!

Get to know Expo 2020 mascots Latifa and Rashid as they embark on an exciting new journey led by Salama the Ghaf tree, while exploring Expo 2020 Dubai and meeting new friends.

Our hero


Latifa is eight years old and loves a challenge! Her quick wit, resourcefulness and intelligence help her find a logical and grounded solution to any test, while her love of tech knows no bounds.

Our hero


Rashid is a nine-year-old boy with a vivid imagination, a love for the environment and a strong spirit that helps him find the courage to fight for what’s right.

Our sage


The wise ghaf tree Salama. If her leaves could speak, they would fill the wind with magnificent tales. A beacon of life against the vast desert, Salama has been a place of refuge for travellers for countless years.



Wherever this friendly robot’s little wheels take him, opportunity and hope follow closely behind. But don’t be fooled by his diminutive stature, because at his core is a portal through time and space.



The sharpest and smartest of the guardians, you definitely don’t want to get on Terra’s bad side – especially when she turns invisible. A fierce and loyal guide, Terra is highly protective of nature and knows its deepest secrets.



Alif is definitely the leader of the guardians – or at least he thinks so. This shapeshifting robot will always get you where you need to go, whether you’re digging to the core of the Earth or surfing stardust on cosmic waves.

Our villain

Mr Scrap

Once celebrated for his monstrous coal-chewing, gas-guzzling and smoke-spewing machine, Mr Scrap is fuelled by rage as the world has moved towards sustainability. He has vowed to destroy any symbol of sustainability, including Expo 2020.

Our trusty sidekick


Mr Scrap’s loyal sidekick, Floppy is a robot minion with a few loose bolts and a sputtering engine. They’ve been together for ages, and no one is more loyal than Floppy, but as Mr Scrap becomes more evil, will Floppy stay by his side?

Virtual Expo: Creating Accessibility and Legacy

Whether you are a gamer, looking for content or just curious to explore the Expo site, Virtual Expo has got you covered. The Virtual Expo experience has become the core of our connectedness and how accessibility came to have a whole other meaning.

Beyond Sound and Vision

Virtual Expo isn’t the first time a World Expo revolutionised how it was experienced by audiences. The first visual broadcast of a news event in history took place at the New York’s World’s Fair in 1939.
