Looking for a way to show your Hollywood pride and send a positive message of hope, strength and unity? The City of Hollywood has created a downloadable coloring page for residents to decorate and display in their windows. Children are encouraged, with the help of a parent or guardian, to download and print out the City’s sea turtle logo coloring page. The coloring page can then be personalized and proudly displayed in a show of community spirit during our current “safer-at-home” emergency restrictions.
The #StayStrongHollywoodFL sea turtle coloring campaign is inspired by the efforts of children in the United Kingdom who started a global window artwork initiative by hanging handmade rainbow artwork in their windows as a way to spread cheer and hope in a show of solidarity during the coronavirus pandemic. A Teddy Bear scavenger hunt is also underway across the U.S. with children playing an “I Spy” game by placing teddy bears in their windows, posting pictures to social media and tracking how many others have followed suit.
“This creative use of the City’s logo is a great way to express our strong community spirit, get the kids involved in a fun activity, and demonstrate that we are all connected and in this together,” says Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy, “It’s a little dose cheer during this difficult time.”
In history and mythology, the sea turtle is a symbol of endurance, persistence and the continuation of life with a resilient shell ready to protect it from threatening outside influences. Help show the strength and solidarity of our Hollywood community by coloring and displaying the sea turtle logo during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Once decorated and hung in the front window, residents can share their photos on the City’s Facebook page using the hashtag: #StayStrongHollywoodFL.
