This logo was designed for a year-long celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation held on Concordia University's campus in Seward, Nebraska.
The circles surrounding the cross are designed to look as if they are “reverberating” out from the cross, symbolizing the message of Christ being sent out to the masses. The rings in the background also form a “D”, which is the roman numeral for “500”. This connects the logo to the celebration’s 500th year. Lastly, the blue and green color scheme is used to reflect “peace” and “renewal”, two words that are consistent with the Reformation’s impact on Christians. The colors can be interchangeable to reflect the liturgical year of the church.
