I would say Tennessee is a diverse state. There’s history, music, food, nature, agriculture, and sports, just to name a few. To try to encompass the entirety of what represents the state cohesively is quite challenging.

After many revisions I decided to keep it simple and classic. The major element used in the design was taken from the state flag. The emblem in the center represents the three Grand Division of the state—East, Middle, and West Tennessee.
