Yes, County departments may use the seal if certain documents and/or materials. The official seal should be used on its own in all formal, ceremonial and/or official contexts that relate specifically to official Board of Supervisors correspondence, legal documents, notices, mandates, PowerPoint presentations, and/or resolutions approved by the Board of Supervisors.
By default, the official seal should not be used when the purpose is everyday communication to the general public, such as social media, department news releases, e-mail footers, government vehicles, business cards, letterhead, etc., unless otherwise approved by the Clerk-Recorder’s Office.
To avoid confusion, the official seal should not be used together with the popular mark or any other logo representing County departments. For more information on when to use the seal and when to use the popular mark, see page 12 of the County Identity Standards Manual.
