Design our new patch!


Design

Morrisville Fire Protection District is considering new patch designs, and we want to see your ideas!

What are we looking for? Great question! We’d like something that is simple and can look professional in both color and black and white. We’d also like something that represents the area and the people we protect. Any graphical elements used need to be copyrightfree or royalty-free. It should be based on the Maltese Cross, a traditional symbol of fire departments. Included are examples of the previous Morrisville Fire and Rescue patch design in the Maltese Cross.

The elected MVFPD board of directors will have final decision in patch selection. We would like to have submissions in by the end of September. Multiple submissions are welcome!

For any questions or submissions, find us on Facebook or e-mail patch@morrisvillefire.org
