History of Logologo for the Minden Hills Cultural Centre
The Minden Hills Cultural Centre (red) logo represents the unity of the areas of the centre; Minden Hills Museum & Heritage Village (yellow), Haliburton County Library Minden Branch (brown), Agnes Jamieson Gallery (blue) and Nature’s Place (green). The red maple leaf symbolizes the national significance of the centre’s collections and the fall beauty of local trees. The leaf and triangles are a bridge over the blue line which represents the Gull River.

The colours are based on those used in the Haliburton tartan.
The green represents the forest, blue is for lakes; white for snow and the trillium; red and gold for fall colours; brown for the earth and fur-bearing animals.
