The seal

[City seal] image located by Paul Bassinson, 18 May 2019


A clear image of this seal can be found at . The seal consists of a circular format with an outer ring and central image both in dark olive green, the central image having a background color of white. The outer circle contains the words 'CITY OF PACIFIC GROVE CALIFORNIA' in white block lettering. There are two white hyphens at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions respectively. At the bottom of the outer ring are the word and date 'INC. 1889' similarly written. The central image shows a tree of unknown variety and a forester silhouetted against a white sky. As Pacific Grove is known as 'The Butterfly City' this web site is speckled with moving images of Monarch butterflies, one of which obscures the actual seal.

The image is very small on the first page, and the butterfly is strategically placed to obscure key details on the second page, but to me the "forester" looks more like two other trees in the background. And if their name includes "Grove" shouldn't we expect more than one tree on their emblems?  The name of the image at the page is "City Flag & Butterfly". Does this hint the city flag is a white seal on a bedsheet?
