Symbol is erect and proud.
Symbol is hard, smooth, and in love with itself exactly like the community it resides in. It is androgynously orange and dildoicly red. The red represents its inner strength; a weapon used cautiously in the war on demographic depression. Politcal talk was made of repainting It blue to match the community's emotions, rather than matching the roof of the Metro Centre it once sat near a very long time ago in the late 70s and early 80s when people in Rockford still didn't have jobs.
NOTE: Metro Centre & Symbol ARE NOT related.
