New logo: Destination Salem
Salem, Massachusetts is a town of over 40,000 people, best known as the site of the Salem witch trials back in 1692.
The Salem Office of Tourism & Cultural Affairs, or Destination Salem, unveiled a new logo on the morning of Thursday, February 18 at something called Peabody Essex Museum. The symbol in the new logo is intended to look both like a witch hat and sailing boat, a references to the witch trials and Salem position by the sea. Also presented was a new slogan: "Salem - still making history"
I haven't been able to get a good picture of the logo that was used before the new one, but logo below was used at least until 2009.
