Summary

Description
English: The seal of the City of Rochester, New York described in the city code as containing--

'Seal of the City of Rochester. Settled in 1812. Incorporated a City 1834.' Within, in the upper part, is a large eagle with wings spread perched on a shield. In the beak of the eagle and draped over both wings is a ribbon inscribed with the words, 'Flower City.' The shield depicts the rising sun between high hills with a body of water and ancient ships in the foreground. Under the wings of the eagle is an urban skyline which to the right of the shield depicts, among other buildings, flour mills and a train of cars crossing the railroad bridge over the upper falls of the Genesee. To the left of the shield, among other buildings, is depicted the dome of the old City Hall and a church spire and a portion of the Erie Canal spanned by the aqueduct upon which a canal boat loaded with flour barrels is being drawn by two mules. At the base below the shield is a flour barrel, a basket of apples, a plow, a water wheel, a cluster of grapes, a sheaf of grain, an anvil, a pumpkin and other vegetables, all of which are bound with a scroll, upon which is the word 'Excelsior.'
