Description
English: Seal of the Borough of Queens, which is identical to the art at the center of the Queens flag, the only exceptions being the banner at the bottom with the year 1898, the year of the borough's consolidation into the City of New York, and the crown placed at the top-center, paying honor to Catherine of Braganza for whom the borough derived its name. The wampum ring represents the Lenape people who used to collect the shells to make it on these shores, when the land was known as "Sewanacky", the "island of seashells". This feature differs from other versions which appear with a red outline; the outline is neither codified in the official design description or shown in the original artwork and appears to have been added later from the stitching of some flags. The tulip represents the Dutch settlers while the Tudor rose represents the English. This version is based on renditions by the Queens County Court and archived web material from CFW Flags and the Borough's website, with the tulip and tudor rose based on the original 1913 flag artwork.
