The mascot depicts Jibanyan a top an iceberg, petting a white earless seal. The earless seal appears to be coated in white pearlescent paint.

The front side of the iceberg has a white text that reads "HOKKAIDO" in Roman letters. The white font color gives the impression that the letters were etched in the surface of the iceberg.
