Provincial government logo designs don't tend to be hugely exciting, but concerned citizens have noticed something strange going on with the British Columbia logo. Visitors to the Canadian province's website and social media accounts have been surprised to discover that some of the letters have disappeared from the wordmark.

Cue plenty of quite wild speculation about what's going on. Maybe British Columbia is transitioning to a textless logo. Maybe the image files suddenly all got corrupted? Some have even speculated that the message is a tribute to Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak. But it turns out it's something much more clever than all of that.
