Minneapolis rejects new sailboat logo

Since the mid-70s the official logo of Minneapolis has been two stylized sailboats next to our "City of Lakes" motto and the city name. It's on everything from our garbage trucks to the mayor's stationary.

The powers that be decided that we should be pulled from the 70s up to at least the late 90s, so they commissioned a re-design of the logo that features a more modern color scheme and a better looking sailboat.

But there was a chorus of "It will cost too much" and "People will be confused" and "Umm, why exactly is our logo a sailboat anyway?" and in the end the city council decided to stay with the old logo.

City politics, so fun. Are the lakes open yet? I wanna go sailing.
