The I Love New York logo, designed by Milton Glaser, is right up there with there with the best of them; nothing quite like it exists in capturing the hearts and minds of native New Yorkers and visitors alike. This is a true iconic brand image.
As Wikipedia puts it:
I Love New York is both a logo and a song that are the basis of an advertising campaign and have been used since the mid-1970s to promote tourism in New York City, and later to promote New York State as well. The trademarked logo appears in souvenir shops and brochures throughout the state, some licensed, many not. The song is the state song of New York.
