The TRIANGLE... how did it become a symbol for us? Importantly for the founding family, and foremost, there is an obvious Christian connection to the Trinity. Also, historically, an upside down triangle was used to symbolize water which seemed to fit well for a logo about a LAKE. In mathematics and engineering, a triangle is known to be exceptionally strong, and psychologically it can represent wisdom and stability. A triangle has 3 sides and the number 3 happens to play a huge part in the personal lives of our founders, the lake in general, and it is a collective favorite number of the team. Smith Lake has 3 main channels - Ryan Creek, Rock Creek and Sipsey Fork, and the lake lies in 3 counties we cherish: Cullman, Walker and Winston.
"A definition of Teal: Teal is a blue-green colour. It can be created by mixing blue into a green base, or deepened as needed with black or gray." We often use several different Pantone colors from palettes of teal and aqua in production of our logo and products. Teal is said to symbolize "morality and renewal" and evoke feelings of "tranquility, optimism, restfulness, reflection and understated elegance." Pretty cool! The colors of navy blue, charcoal and black (sometimes we use brownish, khaki & taupe hues) were chosen as natural toned colors (found in the rocky shorelines around the lake) to simply provide a nice contrast and complement to the base colors of creamy white (like fluffy clouds on a summer day) and shades of teal (as in the crisp clean cool greenish waters of Smith).
We hope you like our logo and colors as much as we do. We have noticed lots of companies around the lake adopting these colors to use in lake merchandise and we LOVE it! We are HERE FOR IT! Enjoy using these colors that have now become a symbol of our lake, and often adopted as Smith Lake's official colors.
