What the OP is looking for is not a gobo, but a cucoloris or "cookie". Gobos are to block light from falling on the lens or other parts of the scene. Cookies are used to project a pattern, including a rectangular shape on the background.

Here is a link to read more about "cookies"

Gobos and cookies - six of one, half a dozen of the other.

The term gobo is frequently and incorrectly used but the correct term for what is used to block light is "flag".  It took me awhile to learn the correct terms too.
