A new logo for Tennessee state government comes with criticism. This replaces over twenty old, separate logos, however. From the Tennessean.
You've probably seen it by now: a "TN" inside a red box floating above a blue stripe.
You've probably seen the price tag for the logo — $46,000 — and criticism that it could've been designed by a child.
You won't see that new Tennessee state logo on the state flag or replacing the tristar symbol, though, said David Smith, a spokesman for Gov. Bill Haslam.
"To be clear: nothing is happening to the flag, tri-stars or state seal," Smith said Tuesday in an email to The Tennessean.
"There is no singular graphic identity for state government currently. This (is) about a consistent graphic identity for state government. The flag and tri-stars are bigger than state government."
