Zee Punjabi is a Punjabi-language general entertainment channel in India that was launched on 13 January 2020. This is a resurrection of the original Zee Punjabi, which was launched in 1999 but replaced by a news channel, Zee Punjab/Haryana/Himachal, in 2013. Its primary competitor is PTC Punjabi, which has hitherto had a monopoly among Punjabi general entertainment channels.
The official logo of the channel, in gold against a maroon background, was unveiled during the channel launch event on 16 December 2019.
The graphics package consists of maroon and gold circular and floral elements influenced by phulkari (traditional Punjabi embroidery).
