The City Clerk of Chino, California, wrote regarding the flag of the city of Chino. The flag is a white rectangle (exact dimensions not given) with a gold fringe on three sides (not alongside the hoist, I presume). In the center of the flag is the Chino Municipal Seal, an example of which is visible at the Chino municipal web site.
Although Ms Tanner has been unable to find any info regarding the designer of the seal, the present design featuring a cornucopia has been used since the city was incorporated. The original design showed the cornucopia overflowing with fruit, then in 1922 a Holstein cow was added to the design. Apparently the present design was adopted sometime in the 1950s, but again nobody knows who modified the designs.
The symbolism of the seal is associated with the rich agricultural productivity of Chino and its environs, with the Holstein cow being added to mark the introduction of dairy farming into the region.
