Mecklenburg County also has a seal, which is used on stationery, cars, trucks, doors, and the county flag. The banner in the eagle's claws has the date the Mecklenburg County Declaration of Independence was signed. The inkwell, quill pen, and paper also symbolize the Declaration. The farm buildings represent the county's rural or unincorporated areas, and the office buildings represent the urban or city area. The county seal also has a hornet's nest, and the two different kinds of branches represent modern and traditional times. The seal was designed by Harvey H. Boyd and was adopted by the County Commissioners in October of 1964.
The website at
shows this seal used on a white field as the county flag.
