The City of Vancouver is getting a new look, at least when it comes to its official logo.

City Council approved Vancouver’s new logo this afternoon. Only two council members, George Affleck and Melissa DeGenova, opposed the new design.

The new design will be rolled out digitally and onto new documents. Changes to the city’s six welcome signs will have to wait since this year’s budget can’t cover the $150,000 cost.

City staff had commissioned a redesign of the existing logo to give the city a new visual identity. The existing logo not been updated in more than a decade.

Not surprisingly some Vancouverites aren’t happy with the new design.
