I wanted to do one across Canada for all the major city police forces, but they are all so similar. Regal looking logos complete with crests full of unicorns and flowers and dragons along with huge wreaths and banners and crowns and shields, etc.

I was amazed that practically all of them had every element I mentioned above. While these GTA ones only borrow some elements, and on a smaller scale. They are all so unique from each other. Well York and Durham are similar.

I mean this RCMP one is actually on the lower end of opulence compared to the city crests.

yep, automatic coolness when you've got your crest on the SPLHB centrefold.

Town of Okotoks - I quite like their official logo...


The city of Chestermere, ugh...


Town of Pincher Creek, another ugh...


Town of Carstairs, really?


It seems there's much more bad in Alberta than good - Okotoks' logo is quite the stunner and I've left some of the real bad ones out.

Town of Two Hills versus town of Three Hills - which one gets it right...

Lol. Not quite as prestigious, but I'm starting to appreciate the logo even more.

Patio Lanterns is one of the greatest summer/cottage songs in Canadian history.

Ya despite the slogan, Okotoks has a pretty decent logo. I also like saying the name.

Carstairs is very bad. It's bad because its a town's logo. If it were a logo for a skateboard company it would be okay.

Kim Mitchell is the kind of stuff that for some reason sounded waaaaaay better when I was in my early 20s and going out partying three times a week, than it does today.

It's kind of like Ashton's poutine in Quebec City at 4 am after a night of clubbing. Try it sober in the middle of the day for fun.

Here are some nice and some not-so-nice logos from the Laurentides (Laurentians) region in Quebec. This region is cottage and lake country for Montrealers, and known for a its ski hills, which include Mont-Tremblant, in the winter.

In the region's bigger towns, some of the logos are nice (and for once, the styles are very different):


I particularly like the Ste-Agathe-des-Monts one : it's clever, they still show a moutain and a lake, but without the green /blue / swoosh.

St-Jérôme is original, but why a lion? (Edit : I found the answer : St-Jérôme's companion was a lion)


But in the smaller towns and villages, you can tell they didn't have a big budget when it was time to create their logos :



Like elsewhere, lots of blue / green / swoosh

Lol. Kim Mitchell sounds way better with several BEvERages.

Okotoks' logo makes me ask "what ocean are they located on?" Yes, I do know they are on a river. It's just the water level seems way higher than it should be and wavy.

I'm liking a lot of those Laurentian logos. And I don't mind a couple of those in the second set.

Okotoks' logo is too watery, given where it is. Does it suggest there are a number of things to do?

^ Until I started reading this thread, I hadn't realized how water-obsessed municipal logos generally are. You could have a town with some muddy little creek running through it and the logo will feature a vibrant blue streak representing water complete with a stylized sailboat sailing under the sunshine.

Brings to mind the sad photos of river beaches some have posted on this forum...the French Riviera, these places are not, no matter how much someone tries to gussy it up. They are what they are.

I immediately checked Google Maps when I saw that logo. Definitely a head-scratcher. There's a small river and some pond looking things

Sounds like Chestermere's logo, another place I looked up after seeing their logo, it is on a seriously small lake.
