The logo on some City of Havre de Grace publications is about to change.
It's one small step of what will be a series of visible changes and behind-the-scenes efforts by the committee appointed to coordinate the city's bicentennial commemoration of the War of 1812.
A new logo (see image with this article post) will be used on various documents and publications the committee and the city will use leading up to the bicentennial events, planned for the first weekend in May 2013.
“This logo was produced with a tag line to outline our role in the War of 1812. These terms, Resolve, Resilience, Remembrance, outline chapters of our story," City Councilman Bill Martin said in a statement.
Havre de Grace Manager of Marketing and Tourism Brigitte Peters said: "We are excited to be able to display the logo design on letterhead, business cards, banners and flags to brand and build partnerships to tell our story and commemorate the War of 1812."
According to the statement, the committee includes two City Council members and one member of the following groups: Havre de Grace Tourism Advisory Board, Economic Development Advisory Board, Historic Preservation Committee, Arts Commission, Lock House Museum, Friends of the Concord Point Lighthouse, Decoy Museum, Maritime Museum, 4th of July Committee, Havre de Grace Main Street, Skipjack Martha Lewis, Steppingstone Museum, Havre de Grace Public Library, Harford County Office of Tourism, Havre de Grace Chamber of Commerce, City Staff, American Legion and the VFW.
The committee will plan events for the celebration.
