San Bernardino County Seal

About the County Seal

The emblem, which is used as the official seal, symbolizes the two levels of government for which the County acts as agent; namely, the Federal government, symbolized by the Eagle, and the State of California, represented by the Bear Flag insignia. The emblem depicts the San Bernardino Mountain range, famous for its resort areas and mining industry. The open area, fringed by cultivated areas, depicts the agriculture of the County and the conversion of desert lands to productive citrus and vineyard lands. These industries are represented symbolically again in the orange and grape wreath. The main figure of the streamlined train, emerging from a gear wheel, followed by the covered wagon, represents the development of industry and transportation in the County from the early Mormon settlers to the County’s present position as a railroad and steel production center.
