‘Crystal Fountain’ Is Arlington’s New Vehicle Decal

"Crystal Fountain" decal finalistArlington County has selected its 2014-2015 vehicle decal.

“Crystal Fountain” was the top vote-getter in the annual decal contest, which is decided by votes from residents — 1,409 votes this year, to be precise. The decal was designed by Wakefield High School senior Mobin Fateh. It depicts a scene in the Crystal City Water Park on Crystal Drive.

The decal will grace the windshields of about 160,000 vehicles in Arlington starting this summer.

“I took this picture of Arlington because I like the colors reflected in the fountain,” Fateh said. “The different colors also represent the diversity in Arlington. I’m grateful to be living in such a beautiful and diverse community as Arlington.”

Five finalists were chosen for the contest this year, from a pool of 50 entries. A panel of Arlington residents helped narrow them down. The four decal finalists who didn’t make the final cut were:

  • Mark Love, 9th Grader at Yorktown High School, with his design “Education is a Virtue”
  • Isabel George, 12th Grader at Wakefield High School, with her design “Arlington’s Namesake”
  • Lena Mobin, a 12th Grader at Wakefield High School, with her design “Arlington’s Bright Lights”
  • Gabrielle Young, an 11th Grader at Washington-Lee HS, with her design “Netherlands Carillon”

“This was quite a task for our Citizens’ Panel,” said Chief Deputy Treasurer Carla de la Pava. “There were so many great entries that we ended up with five finalists instead of four.”
