The City of Burlington City Council has approved a brand and logo for the City of Burlington, Burlington, Wisc. August 16. The meeting was held in the Common Council Chamber, 224 E. Jefferson St. The agenda can be viewed by visiting this link.

Discussions about rebranding have been going on since 2020, when the Municipal Council approved a contract with GrahamSpencer, a branding company, to help rebrand. This change was facilitated by grant funding. The designers have put the finishing touches on the logo and the city will now begin the process of replacing the old logo.

The old logo featured an image of a skyline with the phrase “Chocolate City” and Burlington, WI.

The city turns to an image that represents life in the city of Burlington, while the community chooses to represent itself by showcasing its best attributes. The new brand and logo symbolize health, growth, Mother Nature, hope, peace, unity and more.
