The Official Seal has been specifically designed to represent the local government of Roanoke County, Virginia. The colors, typography, and design elements were chosen to represent the unique characteristics of Roanoke County, its values, and heritage. The Official Seal was adopted by the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors in June 1968.
The Official Seal is the way citizens identify with the authority of Roanoke County's government, and therefore it cannot be altered or distorted in any way. Certain departments or County offices should retain usage of the Official County Seal to represent the authority of Roanoke County, including but not limited to:
Board of Supervisors,
Public Safety (Police, Fire & Rescue, Emergency Communications and Zoning Code Enforcement),
Constitutional Offices (Treasurer, Commissioner of the Revenue, Clerk of Circuit Court, Commonwealth’s Attorney, and Sheriff).
Exceptions to the uses above may be made at the discretion of the County Administrator.
