DC Flag Logo Love


Have you noticed how many local restaurants, bars and (all three!) new District breweries are embracing DC pride with their logo designs?

Our city flag's three stars and two bars lend themselves nicely to creative interpretations. The design, based on George Washington's family coat of arms, was even voted tops by the North American Vexillological Association. (Word of the day: vexillology is the scholarly study of flags.)

Does that mean someone might let us vote one day?

DC pride logos, top row: DC Brau, Chinatown Coffee Co., Chocolate City Beer
Second row: The Passenger, the DC flag, Three Stars Brewing
Third row: Sticky Fingers Bakery, DC Empanadas, District Kitchen

What are your favorite DC flag-inspired logos?
