The municipality of Söğütlü (14,203 inhabitants in 2020; is located 20 km
north of Sakarya.
Söğütlü was first settled by nomadic Turks during Osman's rule. The first settlement was established in Soğucak , close to the river that crosses the municipality and was then lined by willows ("söğüt"). Another explanation relates the name of Söğütlü to Söğüt (province of Bilecik), the place of origin of the first settlers.
The first municipal logo was adopted in 1956 when the municipality was established.
The second municipal logo was adopted in April 2016 in a public contest that yielded 248 proposals.
There is no information available on the newest logo.
