The Alaska Marine Highway has a new logo.
The blue-and-white “retro” image includes a ferry surrounded by a circle with the system’s name, plus an orange anniversary banner.
Officials say the shape is inspired by portholes of oceangoing vessels. The colors represent the ocean and waves ferries sail through.
Department of Transportation spokesman Jeremy Woodrow says it’s part of the upcoming celebration of the system’s 50th year.
“January 2013 will probably be when it starts. We’re going to be announcing the roll-out of the celebration coming up pretty soon here, within the next week or two,” he says.
Anchorage’s Bradley Reid and Associates created the new logo.
It replaces a more standard-looking, rectangular image that also shows a ferry and the system name.
