AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — More than two dozen proposed images have made the cut to become the new logo for Amarillo after a design dispute nixed the original version.

The Amarillo Globe-News (http://bit.ly/190FLbk ) reports the second round of online voting runs through Monday for public input on a logo for Amarillo's 100th anniversary.

The 25 finalists have references to Open Spaces and Endless Opportunities. Some show cattle, horses, windmills or turbines.

The original logo developed by the city and unveiled last month, with white rays splaying out of an orange and yellow background, was similar to the design of a Dubai real estate developer. Amarillo faced possible legal action before abandoning that logo.

The newspaper reports more than 23,000 votes were cast on about 530 logo submissions in the first round of public balloting.
