(City Manager Darwin D. P. McClary, Sept 19, 2013)
The Lake Orion village council approved a new official logo for the village. The Lake Orion dragon logo is actually a combination of four elements: (1) the dark green head of a dragon representing the close connection between the village and the Lake Orion school district and annual Dragon on the Lake festival; (2) a light green park scene with trees and bicyclists representing the wonderful park and recreational opportunities awaiting you in our village; (3) a dark red historic downtown facade representing the village’s proud history, historic architecture, and vibrant downtown business community; and (4) a whimsical light blue sailboat emphasizing our cherished lake living. The four elements comprise the head and body of the Dragon, symbolizing the interconnectedness and synergy of the elements in making us the wonderful, unique, and quaint community that we are. This logo is the culmination of a lot of work on the part of the Lake Orion Downtown Development Authority through its community branding process and is intended to provide a concise, clear, and unified message about the Lake Orion community.
Look for our new logo to begin appearing on all of our printed and electronic documents over the next few months!
