This logo is based on the icon of a graph as a widely-recognized business symbol. The three lines of the graph rise to represent business growth and advancement of the commonwealth. The three lines also represent small, medium and large businesses. The logo is also representative of Kentucky's geography, with the mountains, rolling hills of the Bluegrass, rivers, roads and farmland depicted in the lines. The center line connects Ashland to Paducah, indicating statewide leadership. As a whole, the graphic presents a stylized outline of our state.
