Check Out Colorado’s New Logo!

As introduced today by Gov. Jared Polis in his inimitable style:

We think it looks cool! Your mileage may vary. Reportedly this logo was in existence prior to Gov. Polis taking office, but was used in other contexts than the “official” logo while former Gov. John Hickenlooper was in office. Hickenlooper’s logo design, featuring a monochrome green triangle with a second down-facing triangle serving as the logo for various departments, is what graces state vehicles, literature, and signage today:

It’s a design that was criticized in some circles, especially the department logos featuring a drill bit to “honor” the state’s mineral extraction heritage. We haven’t seen how those departmental logos will update to match the new main logo, but we’d guess that the drill bit’s days are numbered–perhaps excepting departments that deal with, you know, drilling.

Out with the old, in with the new-ish.

    Seems like someone wants to oppress triangles? Isn’t this just an affront to the trinity? And half-a-rainbow? We didn’t vote for this!  RECALL the libs! Will this madness ever end?!?

    (great upgrade, Gov)

    How long before Poderamus comes in and denounces this overreach with a profanity-laced tirade?

    I like the new one much more than the old one that looked like a mile marker or something.

    We love the “traditional” green and white licence plates and I insisted on them for our new car, but those signs blend into the scenery a little too much to be useful.

    Does that mean I'm going to have to do a general upgrade on my avatars on a wide variety of sites? 

    I use “me and a dog” here … but on others, I use a Colorado flag with the distinctive C in it.

    So, Colorado’s finally going to phase out those ugly, old carbon monoxide warning signs? . . . 

    . . . all I can say is, thank you O&G industry, and other polluter, regulations!
