Do your logo colors represent anything?

Did you know this? In May of 2007, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) changed the rules of the bidding process for cities, with one clause stating that city logos "shall not contain the Olympic symbol, the Olympic motto, the Olympic flag, any other Olympic- related imagery [such as] flame, torch, medal, etc."
I had no idea.

So, Chicago 2016's skyline torch had to be redesigned. But what I was drawn to the explanation of why these colors were used. A blue-to-green gradient on the bottom, represents the lakes and the parks, and a red-to-yellow gradient on the top, represents the skyline of the city at sunset. Nicely done, don't you think?

What colors do you think of when you consider your home town? Please share!
