When branding is associated to marketing and advertisement of the city, image/identity shows sovereignty and pride of the city.

Regional government like city, district, or province has almost full authority on conducting their own government. Bandung city as one of cities in Indonesia has showed its ability on conducting city branding. “Bandung Juara” as Bandung city branding could give positive impact on regional economic development through city advertisement. In the other side, the cultural identity of Bandung city does not arise along with those city branding.
