Kent reveals 125th anniversary logo

The District of Kent will be celebrating its 125th anniversary in January 2020

The logo for the District of Kent’s 125th anniversary has finally been revealed.

After launching a contest back in January, the District of Kent 125th Celebration Sub-Committee has chosen a winning logo, featuring corn, cows, Mount Cheam, the river and a few historic buildings.

The logo, which was unveiled in the District of Kent’s council meeting, will be used to brand banners and collectible paraphernalia for the district’s anniversary celebrations next year.

Because of the size of the logo, the sub-committee also developed a corporate logo that could be used on small items, such as newspaper ads and district-related materials like letterheads and the Leisure Guide.

This logo uses the District of Kent’s corporate imagery, as well as incorporates wording to celebrate 125 years as a municipality. Kent council voted to approve the corporate logo during the meeting Monday night.

Kent staff will begin using the 125th anniversary corporate logo in December of this year to build awareness for the quasquicentennial celebrations.

Although the official schedule of events have not been released, the year-long celebrations will likely include a time-period council meeting, a historic tea and a summer-time Homecoming, among other events and activities throughout 2020.
