Prince William looks for right angle with new logo

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) -- Prince William County thinks it has the right angle to bolster its economic development and marketing efforts. Eight right angles, in fact.

The county recently unveiled a new logo: two squares. A small dark blue square is offset within a larger, lighter blue square. The Washington Post ( reports the logo emerged from a citizen-led economic development task force that wanted a new look on marketing materials.

County spokesman Jason Grant says the new logo cost $750 to develop.

But some, including county Supervisor John Jenkins, find the squares obtuse. He would prefer to utilize the county seal, which itself has been controversial because it prominently includes tobacco leaves -- a reflection of the suburban county's history as tobacco country.

Jenkins has introduced a resolution to scuttle the squares.
