Strathcona County logo
Strathcona County’s logo represents our community’s energetic spirit, powered by people who shape success in all its forms. The logo is contemporary, yet simple, clean and sophisticated, in keeping with the essence of the community's brand. The wave pattern's three stylized Ss, represent Strathcona County (blue), Sherwood Park (blue), joined in the common pursuit of sustainability (green).
It is an extension of our Strathcona County brand, and is an official mark used by the municipality for day-to-day administration and business activities.
