Iowa "A Place To Grow" (33)

Iowa "A Place To Grow"

The theme "Iowa, a place to grow" and the four-loop symbol were developed in 1970 as a vehicle for all Iowans to use in promoting the state. Located at East 14th and Grand Avenue (north of the Grimes Building), this symbol represents growth in all directions and strength in unity. In general and on a personal level, it represents economic opportunity for Iowa and individual growth in education, spiritual awareness, friends, and family. This symbol was de-installed in 2016 by the Iowa Capitol Planning Commission and the Department of Cultural Affairs. It has been placed in the collection of the Iowa Historical Society for historical preservation.
