In the midst of the pandemic, a Charlottesville City Council member has proposed a bold and necessary change: a redesigned city seal.
Apparently triggered by a “cannon” icon and imagery of the University of Virginia Rotunda (as designed by the “rapist-racist” Thomas Jefferson) on the present version of the logo, Vice Mayor Sena Magill, suggested the revision:
“I don’t think our current city logo reflects us as a city. We have changed. We have been reexamining who we are and I think a logo is pretty important with that.”
Magill’s motion for transformation was supported by her council colleagues, including avowed Democrat Socialist, Michael Payne, who suggested a design contest in order to involve the community in the process.
Here, for City Council’s consideration is the first entry in the “Design a New Logo for Charlottesville” contest, submitted by Schilling Show host, Rob Schilling.
In anticipation of the design’s acceptance by City Council, a full line of Democratic Socialist Republic of Charlottesville merchandise—mugs, hats, t-shirts, and bumper stickers—is available now for purchase. Click to order:
