Governor Rauner: Bicentennial logo marks Illinois’ strengths

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner kicked off planning for the state’s 200th birthday Thursday by unveiling the bicentennial logo at the historic Old State Capitol in Springfield, where Abraham Lincoln once served in the Legislature.

Rauner showed off the gold-and-blue symbol with its designer at the first meeting of the Illinois Bicentennial Commission, which was formed to organize the festivities in 2018.
“We reflect virtually every aspect of America,” he said. “We are a crossroads of the nation.”

Illinois' bicentennial logo was designed and donated by Ben Olson of the Schaumburg-based public relations firm 3 Monkeys and an Aardvark Studios.

Rep. Cavaletto encourages anyone who has ideas for local activities and programs, please contact our historical organizations:
