After sorting through 22 submissions, Lexington has chosen its official logo to celebrate our 250th anniversary in 2025.

The year-long festivities will commemorate all things Lexington history and culture, including “highlighting our vibrant arts community,” said Mayor Linda Gorton. And that begins with the logo that will find itself on all promotional products — think: shirts, stickers, posters, and more.

The logo chosen was created by local graphic designer Savannah Guthrie, who wanted to focus on the adaptability of the design.

“With a city like Lexington, there were so many directions an artist could take with this project… historical events, equine imagery, rolling hill landscapes, city life, cultural significance,” said Guthrie. “But for me, my goal was to create a simple, bright, celebratory theme that encompasses it all.”
