germantown logo

ABOUT THE GERMANTOWN LOGO: This Germantown design was originally created in 1975 for the Greater Germantown Appeal by Frank Nofer, a graphic designer and fine artist. The design intended to promote harmony in Germantown. Mr. Nofer also designed interpretations of cities including Philadelphia, Mt. Airy, Washington D.C., and San Francisco. Germantown was the first in the series. Mr. Nofer, who died in 2001, said that the design really is eight separate creations making up the ninth. The total effect symbolically captured the essence of the Germantown community.

ER -- SEPTA route 23 which was a trolley, and at least in concept is scheduled to return as a trolley some day.
M -- Symbolizes the working relationship of the black and white to build a multi-cultural community.
