The City of Canyon became the 22nd city in Riverside County when it was incorporated on December 1, 1990.
A contest was held to create a logo for the newly incorporated city. Seventy-three entries were received from residents and individuals from local communities.
Preliminary judging was based on originality, city identity, balance, focus, case of reproduction, and size reduction. Peg Lefebvre, Kim Norcia, and Dona Cook served as preliminary judges. The city council made the final design choices.
The winner was commercial artist Carl Blomquist. At the time of the contest, Blomquist had been a resident of Canyon Lake for two years. James Cook of Moreno Valley won second place. Canyon Lake resident Justin Spitz won third place. Prizes included cash and merchandise donated by local businesses.
Marti Norris, Vic Knight, Mary Youngquist, Ruth Groce, and Lisa Berry were among the individuals who submitted entries.
The new logo was unveiled during Fiesta Day on May 25, 1991.
