A geographical indication is:

- or other word, phrase or symbol that, resulting from long-term and consistent use, have become essentially attributable to the geographical area where the goods are produced, processed or prepared for selling or where the service is rendered.

A geographical indication may be in word form (a word or a phrase which is the name of a geographical area, includes it or refers to it) or in figurative form (a cartographic representation or symbol of a geographical area referring to a particular geographical area).
