New name and logo for District Municipality

On 24 August 2018, the Western Cape Minister of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, MEC Anton Bredell, officially approved the name change of Eden District Municipality to the Garden Route District Municipality.

The announcement was made in terms of the Local Government: Municipal Structures Act, 1998 (Act 117 of 1998), as per the Western Cape Government Provincial Gazette, no: 7972.

Elements of the new logo:

The King Protea, which is featured above is South Africa's
National flower, and it is also native to the Western Cape,
including parts of the Garden Route.

The Outeniqua Mountains have been included to depict the
linkage between municipal areas on both sides of the
mountains. The mountains separate the Northern and Southern parts of the Garden Route, but it can also be seen as linking the
lush Southern part with the dry Northern part of the region.

The Ostrich resembles the Oudtshoorn and Kannaland
Municipal areas. With Oudtshoorn being the Ostrich capital of
the world, it was important to incorporate it with the logo.

The blue swishes resemble the sea and our wetlands.
