Bicentennial logo connects two peoples
Every good celebration needs a good logo — and this year’s Kamloops bicentennial celebration has one.
The city has unveiled the Two Rivers Two People logo, which will be featured at various festivities to mark Kamloops’ 200th anniversary this year.
The winning logo, designed by Karen Reese, was chosen from among 40 entries in a city-sponsored competition.
Reese said the idea was to illustrate how First Nations in the area at the time embraced the fur traders who settled and founded the city.
“I think it speaks for itself,” Reese said.
The winning design was chosen by a group of judges, which included representatives from the Tk’emlups Indian Band, Thompson Rivers University and the City of Kamloops.
