San Antonio Fire and Police Pensioners’ Association

The concept features a shield shape symbolic of strength, security, and guardianship. The (lone) star (synonymous with Texas) is wrapped/cradled in blue and red ribbons representing fraternity between police and fire personal in the protection of the public. The silhouettes of a firefighter and police officer infer the notion of watchfulness, looking away from each other as a matter of looking out for the rest of us. Each are cloaked in their uniforms, yet adorned in attire that might be worn by most anyone, making the point that these individuals will always be firefighters or law enforcement personnel, employed or retired, in uniform or not. Finally, the graphic features a bold modern typeface that complements the heavy strokes of the crest and counterbalances the “SAFPPA” font in the blue ribbon.
