The website at www.southtucson.org shows a very strange emblem, part logo and part seal. At the top is a yellow lasso fimbriated black and what appears to be a knot or loop at the lower left. Within the lasso are the words 'SOUTH TUCSON' in two rows of black capitals, the upper row being written in smaller letters than the lower. The lower part of the emblem is an incomplete semicircle, with the left end attached to the lasso and the right hanging off into space. In the center foreground is a saguaro cactus in green rising from a brown desert floor and isecting a mountain range in dark blue. To the right of the cactus are two clouds in white and gray, while to the left is an orange sun depicted in Native American fashion. Along the bottom arc of the semicircle are the words of the city motto, written in small black capitals: 'A PUEBLO WITHIN A CITY.'
