The website at www.cavecreek.org shows the seal in the usual circular format. The upper half of the seal is bronze, with the dates of the town's settlement and incorporation blind-stamped in silver, as on
an ingot. The bottom half of the seal is desert sandstone, with the word 'Arizona' in small capitals in silver and a rose stem along the edge. The center of the seal is multicolored, featuring a deep blue-pink sky above. To the left is a rock outcrop in reddish brown; standing on the cliff is a saguaro cactus in its natural color, while to the right of the cactus is a coyote, also in its natural colors. The cliff and the figures on it jut out into a copper-colored sunset, with a hazy
coppery yellow sun in the foreground. Running the entire width of the seal and bisecting it completely is a brown bar with the words 'Cave Creek' in an Old West type face and. All in all, a very striking emblem.
