History of the ICS logo
Our logo was first used on a poster for the inaugural concert in December 1985 which was held to raise funds to set up the Calgary Irish Cultural Society. Dan Bolger had noticed the eye-catching design in the program for an All-Ireland Hurling Final in Dublin, and found a graphic designer to duplicate it.
The logo consists of a Celtic knot from the Book of Durrow which has no beginning and no end, symbolizing our ties to Ireland from Canada.
The gold logo on a green background was used to promote the ICS on our float in the 1985 Calgary Stampede Parade. Ron Nolan created matching scultured plaques for a subsequent float and his designs were later hung in Bunratty Hall and still decorate the venue today.
More recently, Michele Holmgren and Roisin Haughey have engaged a designer to update our logo to be used more effectively on printed and online materials. This is part of a large project to review and update our website, social media and communications.
