Logo types to explore
There is a significant history to the existing logo and this logo contest is for a 60th Diamond Anniversary commemoration, however, it may be used as the organization's new logo going forward so we want to honor the history if we can: Origin of the Whirly-Girls Logo By Jean Ross Howard Phelan In the early 50’s, the U. S. army used an innovative way to recruit needed pilots: a Helicopter Square Dance Team. Operating four Bell 47’s (Army H-13’s), two helicopters were dressed as boys—wearing straw hats with pipes in their painted on mouths/faces—and two were girls—with blond wigs (dyed floor mops), and faces like Betty Boop (for those of you old enough to remember that cartoon favorite). The faces were painted on oil cloth and scotch taped inside the bubble. The skirts covering the skids were made of target practice cloth. With a “Caller” on the mic and the band playing “Turkey In The Straw,” the Team would go through fast dance maneuvers, rotors whirling: “Ladies Do-Si-Do” – “Allemande Left” – as Air Show crowds and TV audiences watched, fascinated (See Dancing Helicopter Models). When Charter member WG #9 Marilyn Riviere and I first saw the Team in action, we instantly agreed to adopt the lady helicopter as the Whirly-Girls Logo. Next, we applied for and got a Trade Mark so we could use it on items to sell for our Scholarship Fund. The rest is history. Speaking of history, Ned Gilliand (Harry E. Gilliand), one of the former Girl Square Dancer’s pilots and later Captain of our U.S. Team at the third World Helicopter Championships in the then U.S.S.R., published history, titled “Dancing Rotors” – our Logo is identified and included!
