Flag

According to City Clerk Melanie Sibbitt, the current "Passion Flower" city logo was adopted on April 13, 2014, and was first used for the flag later that year. The town of Ocoee is named after the Ocoee River in Tennessee: "ocoee" is the Cherokee language word for "apricot vine," which is now called the passion flower.
