Don't know what the first thing is..  Probably the sun.   It's definitely a circle though, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
Two are definitely the sun more than they are "O"
The fountain thing might be the top of an "O"

Was there a "none-of-the-above" choice regarding the new pedestrian bridge?







I like the Japanese Chrysanthemum motif in the 3rd one.  But we don't have ocean nearby, so there is that....

If we are gonna have water, ought to be a river look.  We don't do waves here.

Admittedly, it's easy to use an "O" for Orlando and combine it with a sun motif, or similar.   But it's definitely supposed to be an "O" for Orlando as well. 

The first option for the Tulsa flag also incorporated a stylized "T", which is one aspect of it I do like.

Heck, why not just have a flag with a big blue "T" on it on a yellow background, or some such colors.

I was making a vague movie reference from a recent viewing.  Hoping someone would pick it up.  I'll wait.  Smiley

One of the comments to that article talked about if it ain't broke, don't fix it...like with state license tags.

I would submit that if no one even knows we have a flag, let alone what it looks like, we do have a little bit of a problem.  Life changing?  No, not at all.  But it would be a very nice to have thing if we can get to something more notable and memorable than now.  I don't begrudge our Councilors working on this - it is a valid civic activity to me.



And the state license tag - the old one was nice.  Rather attractive.  Have been watching the new one for months and it is just pure bu$$ ugly!!   Could have been good if they had done the bird on the side, with some color, similar to what the old tag did with the statue picture.  Can't tell what that thing is supposed to be now.

They should have gotten Twitter to sponsor the new tags
