City of Irvine Logo

Have you ever taken a good look at the City's logo? There's a lot more in there than you might imagine!

Irvine prides itself on being a family-friendly community. Irvine is the Safest City of its size for Part I violent crime, according to FBI data for calendar year 2019 and the first half of 2020, which is the most recent data available. Our park system is consistently ranked in the Top 10 in the nation by the Trust for Public Land annual ParkScore Index, with at least 80 percent of all residents within a 10-minute walk of a park. The City also offers hundreds of recreational activities year-round for kids and parents. Our City logo pays tribute to the importance of family with its design on the left side of three figures.

It's understandable that some people might think the right side of the City logo is a tree, seeing that Irvine is home to half a million trees. But, that's actually an asparagus you're looking at! Asparagus is the official vegetable of the City of Irvine, and pays tribute to the agricultural history of this area. Learn more about asparagus' importance to Irvine here

And finally, the giant black "i" in the middle of the logo is for — you guessed it — Irvine!

50th Anniversary Logo

The City of Irvine was incorporated in 1971, and this year we celebrate our 50th anniversary. Look for the 50th anniversary commemorative logo on all City communications, around the City on banners and promotional materials, on social media, the website, and more. We've also created a 50th Anniversary Facebook frame for the community to celebrate this milestone with us. Follow the City on Facebook and add the frame to your Facebook profile picture here.
