SILVER SPRING, Md. — As the world mourns the passing of music legend Prince, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists has decided to honor the memory of the star by bringing back use of the denomination’s former heavily purple logo for seven days.
Prince, who was raised a Seventh-day Adventist, was well-known for his obsession with the color purple. Although the star later left the Adventist faith, church leaders decided to join purple Prince tributes around the world.
“Even Niagara Falls turned purple so the least we can do is do a temporary logo change,” said GC Communications spokesperson Storlila Geni. “We obviously already had the artwork done.”
