Who We Are at First Citizens Bank
First Citizens Bank is a family-owned, community bank headquartered in Mason City, Iowa serving 6 North Iowa counties and the Mora, Minnesota community. Currently, the bank has over a billion in assets and employs over 200 people. The bank is uniquely positioned as a locally-owned community bank with enough size to compete technologically while still being able to provide exceptional personal service.
The Meaning Behind Our Logo
The blue area of the First Citizens logo represents a flag. This originated in 1994, when plans of a merger were announced. It signifies the unity of our family of banks, flying under one flag. This is also true of our merger with Mora in 2014.
The waves in the flag represent movement and action. First Citizens is a progressive organization, always moving forward in technology, vision, and passion.
