Artistic statement
The design is a refresh of the original. It pays homage while positioning for the future. The three colors represent the founding industries of Birmingham: red for railroads, white for cotton, gold for banking. Red also symbolizes Red Mountain, which runs southwest to northeast. The star charge symbolizes Birmingham as “The Magic City” and as Alabama’s largest.
