The new Wellington City logo is offensive for its apparent references to a particular religion and for its abandonment of Maori Te Reo translations. The logo design process further lacked necessary democratic oversight. This petition proposes that the city council scrap the current design and allow city residents to participate in the process of designing a logo that represents them.
The total cost of the new logo was $24,000. Creating a more compelling and less offensive version would cost pennies if the city engaged its creative citizenry in the effort.
