Florida's Famous Flamingo Gets a Makeover

The state’s most famous flamingo is getting a makeover.

The Florida Lottery unveiled its new logo at their Tallahassee headquarters Monday. The Lottery Flamingo has been given a more animated appearance. The changes are all part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the state legalizing lottery games.

Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell was on hand for the unveiling. She put a lot of thought into the changes.

“It’s basically a transition from an older more static logo, to one that’s more engaging and enthusiastic with a lot of energy and that reflects the Florida Lottery today and the Florida Lottery of tomorrow,” said O’Connell.

Since it’s inception in 1988 the Florida Lottery has raised 24 billion dollars for education, that’s almost one billion dollars for every year of its existence.
