Logotypes and Cities representation

Abstract : For a few decades, cities and local administrations are strongly involved in the development of specific images, names become brands and they are reinforced by logotypes. Most of them are based on urban buildings images. This paper deals with this production. First of all, we propose a classification according to the categories of buildings that are represented. The second chapter is dedicated to parallels with early urban representations. The third part presents the relations between these images and the urban coats of arms. Even if these three productions were almost independent form one to others, several similarities show the relevance of these back of time. In the same context, facing the same problem, authors of the different periods have produced quite similar images
