“We are excited to release the 2017 NC Apple festival logo,” Hill said. “The logo captures all that North Carolina, the apple season and fall harvest is about. The red cardinal has special significance to North Carolina as the state bird but it was also my late grandmother, Reba Prince’s favorite bird so cardinals hold a special place in the heart of me and my family. The apple blossoms signify that start of the growing season and the beautiful grouping of apples reflect the abundant harvest after many weeks of laboring in the fields.
“The logo harkens back to the great artwork you would find on the wooden shipping crates that were used to transport apples all across the United States. Many of you may have some dusty treasures of your grandparents somewhere in your basements.”
