Logo

The FCCLA logo shows that FCCLA is a dynamic, active organization bound for the future. The dominant collegiate lettering articulates a focus on education and student leadership. The logo will continue to be red, the color of the rose, as a sign of strength. The swooping arrow arch is a common motif in today’s designs and definitely embodies an active organization that moves toward new arenas. With its space-like feel, this logo is sure to last well into the future, but will always be linked to the time when FHA changed to FCCLA.
