The Story Behind the Logo
The 125 Come Home to Calmar Homecoming logo is symbolic of a community rich in its people, its businesses, and its history. The image portrays the progression of the town’s historic timeline using icons and colour. The green banner stacked upon the green ribbon evokes strength and excellence in a community celebrating 125 years. A log cabin such as those used in the early settler days transitions to a modern home of today’s residents recalling the growth of the community. The green archway signifies the natural passage of time and accumulation of prestige, while the yellow sun-flower rising in the center is indicative of Calmar’s uplifting, optimistic ability to shine bright through adversity.
