Survey: City Seal
City Seal Survey
The El Segundo City Council is considering changing from the current official City Seal. Please participate in what could be a historic moment for our city by providing us with your input.
The City Seal is a unifying symbol that constitutes the characteristics of a city and its community culture. The original version was adopted in 1917. It reflected what El Segundo represented at the time: industry. A new seal was adopted in 1952 to show an industrious refinery complex, a home with a palm tree, a large aircraft representing a growing aviation industry, as well as the El Segundo sand hills. In 1983-84, City Council expressed interest in revising the City Seal but did not move forward with any changes.
To celebrate the City’s Centennial birthday in 2017, a temporary City Seal was created in color with images of the city’s refinery, water tank, satellite, high school, blue butterfly, the sun, and beach waves. The design is symbolic of our 100th anniversary and this centennial brand is used all year round for all celebratory events and on all accompanying materials.
In keeping up with the tradition of updating the city seal to visually reflect the identity of the city as well as since the Centennial Seal has received positive feedback, City Council requested that city staff do some research and come up with a recommendation regarding the future of our City Seal.
An important part of our research is your input. You are part of what makes the City of El Segundo special. Please give us your opinion to help us form a recommendation. Thank you in advance for your partnership!
