– A dude panning for gold
– A dogwood flower
– The Duke Energy Center building
– The Firebird statue (aka the Disco Chicken)
– A hornet nest
– A panther
– The Metamorphosis statue (that huge, weird spinny face down in south Charlotte)
– A stock car
– A knight’s helmet
– And a trolley


You can download the stickers here or by searching for “CitiStiks: Charlotte” in the App Store. You may never have to type full words again.
