Would like to have a cypress tree included some where in the logo/crest.
I found this as a meaningful crest https://lafc.com/crest/ I am not saying to do exactly this but it is an example
The tree is meaningful becuase it is what the city is named for. It also represents community, growth and development. It also needs water to grow and typically is found by water.
Would also like unique design which is why I did not included any examples etc
