City Seal
official city seal

In 1973, in order to establish a design approach to the creation of a new CITY SEAL, several prerequisites were first determined. The seal should be round, provide a strong visual identity, be symbolic in nature, and project a progressive, modern image.

The Concept of the design is based on three of the City’s basic elements:

  1. Its People
  2. Its Natural Resources, and
  3. Its Industry.

These elements were selected to represent the City on the basis of simplicity, directness, and broadness of scope. Graphic symbols were developed to represent these elements in a strong visual manner.

Careful attention was give the arrangement of these symbols in the design in order to provide still further symbolism. The symbol representing “man” is placed in a circle to indicate unity, cooperation and friendship. The symbol for “trees and mountains” is place in the circle between every “man” to represent an abundance of natural resources. The symbol representing “industry and man–made resources” is placed in the center of the design to reflect this element as the center of growth and economy of the City.

Working together in the design as in our society, the elements of man, his natural resources, and his industry create the wheel of progress which symbolizes Greenville on the move today toward a better tomorrow.
