Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra Logo

After the events of Hurricane Katrina the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra was unsure if they would be able to continue performing for the citizens of the state. Enough of the musicians were able to band together to keep the orchestra going. They wanted to freshen up their logo and look to reflect the pride of being the oldest full-time musician-governed and collaboratively-operated orchestra in the United States while also paying tribute to the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. The logo combines the forms of musical notes to form the adopted symbol of the state and city, the fleur de lis.
