The National Archives (USA) has a new logo-which will be unveiled at their
July 4th celebration..its an eagle. US Archivist David Ferriero said "Eagles
traditionally represent strength, courage, farsightedness, and immortality, and
wings symbolize forward movement, swiftness and protection".

Due to the restrictions of lyris requirements of plain text I can't attach the logo
here. you may see a miniature of the logo at: under the
"Annual July 4th Celebration" .

E-mail your ideas to webprogram@... or comments on the NARAtions Blog.
