If you have been patiently counting down the days for the unveiling of the 2012 Republican National Convention logo, then your wait is finally over.

The Republican National Committee on Tuesday revealed the logo, created by a design firm in Virginia (swing state) with ties to the last seven Republican national conventions.

“The elephant—the proud and strong symbol of the Republican Party—with his trunk pointed toward 2012 reflects the spirit, unity and strength of our Party as we plan a successful 2012 Republican National Convention that enables us to march toward victory next November,” said convention Chief Executive Officer William D. Harris.

“The waves beneath Tampa Bay represent our beautiful host city’s location on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico,” said convention Chairman Alec Poitevint. “The three stars in the flag symbolize equality, justice and opportunity—core principles of our country’s Constitution and the founding tenets of the Republican Party.”
