The America250 design aims to be celebratory while keeping things simple and playing it safe (although inevitably some are already seeing unintended NSFW references). There are ribbons. They spell out the numbers 250. The US colours are also in there... or are they? (see our piece on the importance of choosing the perfect logo colour).
