Aberdeen And Aberdeenshire slogan and information about why it was chosen and what the colours represent
The North East of Scotland has had new slogan since 2005.
A Brighter Outlook
It is Aberdeen City And Shire: A Brighter Outlook.
It was chosen to reflect the balance in Grampian between the thriving City and the varied countryside of Aberdeenshire.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

The Aberdeen logo image to go with the new slogan is an outline of Balmoral Castle in Royal Deeside, Balaclava Breakwater Light at Fraserburgh Harbour and Marischal College in Aberdeen. I hope to get official permission to have a picture or photo of it on the website.
Like AboutAberdeen, the chosen colours of the image is blue to portray the beautiful North Sea and green to portray the colourful landscape.
The branding and publicity for the Aberdeen City and Shire slogan was funded by the Scottish Executive City Growth Fund.
Information about the Aberdeen Emblem
Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
