The name Red Cedar originates from the Cedar River, which was originally called the Red Cedar river. The name was based on the name of the river to signify how communities were often built around rivers as the power source of the original mill towns. We're interested in the term Red Cedar for the abstract of what it represents more than for the literal representation of the river. We have several organizations that already tie in the symbol of the river, so we want something that is a unique take on it.
